“old Station, nice Station”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

That any station is a gateway to the world, but it is otherwise like a city that still flashing last whine, bit by bit.
Azuleos panels, ceramics give it a special flair as seen everywhere in Portugal

“Nice arrival to Porto!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

Caught the train from Campanhã to here and this was a great way to arrive in Porto! The station is really nice and the tiles on the walls are amazing!

“It's a railway station - with some nice tiles”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

Ok, I should probably mention the beautiful tile-murals inside the station. They are beautiful; scenes of long forgotten battles with iron-clad men on huge horses. Other than that, it is a station. The building itself is not that impressive, but I suggest to quickly run inside to see the murals. Or catch a train.

“Tiles Tiles Tiles”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

You visit this station for the picturesque blue tiled panels. They are very pretty, worth a snap or two, and then move on.

“What a great station”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

We caught a glimpse of this from the taxi on the way from the airport to the hotel and sought it out. A great combination of illustrations of Portugals history and of trains and some just pretty, all done in huge tiled pictures. Probably my favourite ever station!
