Nice railway station
Jul 2021
Have to visit as its a main sight in Porto; train station with patterned tiled walls, so sorry I sound like it wasn't that special. It was very nice and you could take the train to places such as Aveiro for the day (1.5 hour train ride for about 7 euros return)

Not bad for an old monastery!

Some of best blue tile pictures in Porto. Nice café clear signage. The people of Porto are justifiably proud of this building which is enjoying some renovation at the moment

One of the most beautiful train stations in Portugal.

Several mosaics cover the walls from waist level and rise to the ceiling. Although half the station is under repairs as of late July, you can still enjoy the beauty while you wait for a train or continue your stroll towards the Ribeira

Sao Bento is a small, charming enough train station. It's the end of the line, so it's easy to find your train on one of the 6 track spurs. The main feature is its lobby with its extensive blue-tile mural.

At the time we visited it was a little challenging to find the ticketing office because of construction in the lobby.

Toilets are available for 1/2 Euro.

Beautiful tiles

Check out this train station for the beautiful and historic "azulejo" tiles, that tell a bit of the city's history.

Charming train station

It is indeed a lesson of history, the history of Portugal ! It has a beautiful architecture and it offers the visitors excellent paintings on the walls and a piece of the history of the amazing city of Porto. It is useful to take a train but also just to see it as a participant in the history of the country.

Iconic station in the center of Porto. From this station you can visit many other cities in the north of Portugal.

The most beautiful train station in the world?
May 2021 • Family
Gloriously beautiful ticket hall. As a Londoner, I see beautiful train stations all the time but this is just stunning - the Porto tiled art covers the entrance hall and the platforms disappear into tunnels. Well worth a visit even if you’re not actually going anywhere. Make sure you get the train station not the metro of the same name, though!
