第ㄧ次看到這個車站是在新年放假時刻,滿地垃圾,無人進出,荒蕪淒涼。有奌失望!結果收假後再經過,完全翻然ㄧ新,連站內公共廁所都非常整潔!站在廳內,有種神聖的歷史性美感!建議去參觀的遊客要選擇在非假日去朝聖!以免產生無謂相反的印象。 The first time I visited this station was on the New Year holiday, my impression was not good at all by the garbage all over the place. This image disappears after I visited it second time on normal working day. It looks so beautiful! And it's very clean and neat including the public toilet. Suggest the tourist go to... More

The entrance to the station has fabulous azulejo tiled murals. The murals show scenes from the history of Portugal and are over 100 years old. Trains still depart from the platform behind the entrance hall. The station is very central in Almeida Garret Square.

The main attraction of this station is the entrance lobby, which is lined with beautiful tiled pictures depicting local scenes and history. Well worth a short visit

There are train stations and then there are train stations. Very much reflecting a bygone era, this is a must see. Small, but beautifully preserved.

Visiting Porto without visiting the train station, you missed something ! Go in en enjoy the scenery, look on the walls and above your head. It's free entrance or if you want you can take part of a guided tour
