This is a big old train station that still works. Very ncie design but rundown and not too exciting. I dont think this is in Top Ten of things to do in Maputo. Why come all the way to Mozambique just to see a train station that has hundreds just like it aruodn teh world? Look for better things in Maputo liek the islands and Mafalala.

Stunning old building, it is just a shame that it is not maintained. The area has an abandoned feeling, but definitely something to see when visiting Maputo. There is a small gallery featuring local art.

Saw this as we did our own walking tour of MAputo. Clearly this was once a beautiful archtectural gem that has been left to fall into disrepair. We almost were mugged in the middle of the day on the way here. Maputo is filthy and dangerous.

simple but gives you an idea on how is day by day traveling for those mozambican that every day use this train.
I also suggest you to try Nampula-Cuamba super basic train: take your time and enjoy this 13 hours train- It's sometghing unique

Most of the charme and excitement of long.range railway transportation in Africa can easily be imagined when you watch the outside and the inside of this majestous building in downtown Maputo (daylight visits only, not safe after dark).
As you are in the area also take a look to the Central Post Station, dating probably from the same period (watch indoors, not outdoors only...).
