The gates to the old town

A jawdropper. The uniqueness of the place and the vibe grabs you and wont let you go. A good spot to start feeling the magic of this city.

An easy diversion from the main strips is well worth it. Great Portuguese tiles delisting historical scenes make the reception foyer an artistic delight.

When first entering the station I was amazed by what my eyes were seeing: the whole main all is covered with azulejos representing the history of Portugal. The whole station has a retro' taste I loved, it seems to travel back in time: even the timetables look retro', it doesn't feel like trains will actually leave from there

20,000 ceramic tiles on the wall at the entrance of the train station is beautiful! Walking distance to the cathedral..

It's part of the city history! The station has part of the portuguese history illustrated in tiles so it's a mandatory place to visit if you're in town!

Simply breathtaking from exterior facade into main hall covered in beautiful tiles which feature scenes from history. Definitely a 'must see' for everyone visiting the city and amazing that it's still a working building.

Portugal is known for its Azulejos art form (traditional handmade tiles) and a lot of its monuments, churches an sometimes public spaces are often decorated with them. This is a prime example of an extensive use of this amazing art offered to the public. A real feast for the eyes.
