Beautiful train station; the main hall is domed and the walls covered with tiles forming various frescoes. Do not miss it; it will only take you a few minutes to go inside and see it.

Centrally located. Many photo opportunities, close to sights seeing locations and not far from shopping.

If you are coming to Porto you cannot miss visiting São Bento Railway Station! It's famous for the wonderful tiles that cover the walls.

We arrived at this station en route from Lisbon and whilst we had read about the wonderful tile freezes in the arrivals/departures hall we were not prepared for how fantastic they are "in the flesh". Well worth a visit.

Located in the heart of Porto it is a beautiful Rail Station. Apparently the bathrooms are very clean, you have to pay to enter though.

This station has a fantastic entrance hall. Very old mosaic tiles depicting historic scenes. After that it is a working railway station.
