Worth a look on the way through, but if you are exiting Porto by train don’t make a special trip to see the station. Very good example of tile art.

Can't believe this is a railway station. The detail on the tiles are beautiful with each telling a story. Definitely worth a visit.

Bucket list location and mid Friday morning on a public holiday was hectic both with passengers, regular trippers and vast groups driving after guides wit little blue flags on socks. The entrance lobby is very impressive indeed. Go there.

The São Bento railway station in downtown Oporto is a beautiful piece of architecture, with lovely decorative blue “azulejos” (tiles) panels.
