We made an effort to visit the station, we expected a very grand station but it wasn’t the case. The interior looked pretty, the tiles were lovely but that was about it. I would recommend a visit but perhaps lower your expectations

Not for train fro Lisbon but worth a visit just for the art. Very central so it is easy to fit a visit.

It looks pretty, antique. However, there is much that could be better, such as a more visible, bigger and confortable waiting room. Besides that, the restrooms shouldn't be paid to use when we're talking about public transportation. Some people spend hours in a row inside...More

Tiles tell the stories of the history of modern Portugal. Beware the pickpockets on holidays and high season. Central location is excellent. A vibrant place!

Marvel at the tile work in this station! Impressive and takes you back in time! More like a museum than a train station.

The Sao Bento Station is worth a look to see the wonderful old clock and beautiful tiles. It is also great to see lit up at night.

Yes, the tiles and art work are spectacular but that is all. The rest if the station is bare and at the time of my visit there were many other groups of tourists making the experience quite difficult to embrace...

Visited the station whilst in Porto and have to say the traditional tiles are fantastic. A must see!

No. I was there yesterday and there was no Time Out market there to be seen. Can’t see how that would work at the site, TBH. Perhaps near it, but inside it would be a travesty - in my humble opinion :) If you’re after a... More

Hi I can remember the switch at Campanha was free. There are clear signs when you stop on the track where to go underneath the rail to the other side of the track. It was free because we didn't exit the station but merely... More
