Its a relatively small train station that is located at the entrance of a tunnel. You can see the train entering the tunnel when it leaves the station. But the best part is the mosaic and paintings on the walls.

Go and check the tiles and the entrance of the rail station! It is for free! Good captions can be taken also to the place were the trains stop.

It's one of the most beautiful and traditional (Porto-style) stations I've ever seen. You can travel through time when you enter. When I visited Porto, there was a Jazz Festival which had concerts on the station every Thursday. Worth visiting!
