Not just an Urban railway station but a gallery of superb traditional azulejos tile panels that adorn the interior. Spend some time enjoying them and catch a later train!

A stunning entrance hall depicting various facets of Portuguese history make this well worth a visit. The work was done using tiles to create massive murals. Just stand and stare.

If you do not see it you will have no idea what you have missed. Photos do not reflect the actual beauty of this place. As for me it was one of the best attractions in Porto.

Gorgeous tile work in front room of station welcomes visitors before going on to the platforms. Ticket booth officers are friendly and helpful and speak quite good English. We were impressed that the trains run on time...to the minute!

This place is really kind of neat. All the trains end here - and all the trains have to go through a long tunnel to get to the river This historical station is known for its tile panels that depict scenes of the history of Portugal.

An obvious must-see of Porto! Stop in to see the beautiful Azulejos decorating the station, even if you're not passing through.

Just go inside of this train station and be marvellous with the interior of this station. Take your camera with you because you gonna need to take a lot of photos.

The tile murals are some of the best. Do not miss stepping into the lobby of this train station. The walls are covered with typical Portugal scenes.
