What a station

The inside walks of the station building are covered in Tiled murals. Incredible scenes, and great camera shots.

This charming old station has extensive use of the traditional use of ceramic tiles to protect and beautify the stucco wall surfaces. The station was very clean and pleasant, and located centrally in Porto.

The foyer of the train station looks like a museum! All walls are covered with the tile picturing the major historical events. Highly recommend to take a walking tour so you can hear the story about the building! There are some pictures of Porto that could be helpful for you to make a decision whether to visit it or not:...

I was feeling a little nervous about having to catch the train, not knowing the language at all, but it was so easy. Well signed, clean & the trains always run on time. A beautiful historic building also

We hadn't intended to hang around a railway station, so only went in because we were passing on our way to another attraction. . We didn't regret looking in. Definitely has a "wow factor".

Just around the corner from our hotel, worth a visit to see the main entrance which has spectacular tiles all around it. Great photo opportunities.

This is not a place to say farewell as the station leaves a nostalgic image with its old building, blue&white tiles in your mind making it very hard to say your goodbyes. Alluring.
