Must see - short visit

The tile murals are beautiful. Stop by if you are in the area. I wouldn't necessarily go out of your way to go there. You can look at the murals in about 5 minutes. There's no seating inside so you just look and move on.

We were really taken aback by the tile work in the main rail station in Porto. This is well worth seeing and quite surprising in such a mundane place.

We walked in the station to admire the tile art depicts scenes of history of Portugal. They are lovely and free to admire. Do stop by when you are in Porto.

If architecture is your thing then this place is certainly worth a visit. If you're simply catching a train, plan extra time to look around because this station is almost a work of art. You really need to see it to understand. There are trains from here nationwide. The staff were very helpful and spoke sufficient English for my requirements... More

Unique train station covered with incredible tiles all over the walls...Almost a shame that it is a train station!! Easily eachable on foot as located right in the city centre. Peculiar.

The building itself is majestic & the décor on the walls is beautiful. What a treasure to be found in the heart of a lovey city.

We arrived early in the morning to catch the train and it was still dark however the seats were comfortable and we didn't have long to wait as the train was on time.
