This is main station of Porto. The station itself is not at all grand but very simple. There are huge walls covered with marbles and they have historic scenes painted on it. These paintings are really good and each one has a story behind them.

We love stations Washington and Grand Central New York and Moscow Underground the tops but this is up there but not in size. Only a 100+ years the tiles portray key historical moments. Well worth including tour of what is a small city centre.

Beautiful tiled walls give this station that little something extra. The information/ticket area is efficient and helpful but make sure you get a numbered ticket before you queue. There are some interesting characters about so be careful of your possessions. The Portuguese rail system is very good and this is a pleasant station to catch a train.

Lovely tiled murals and imposing entrance. Did notice a few dodgy characters there but had read it was a place to beware of pickpockets so prepared for that, in any case there were also station security guards in evidence.
