The guidebooks say that the glazed tiles (azulejos) in Portugal have been introduced by the Moors. Since then they have become an essential part of Portuguese applied art, especially in the decoration of the buildings. The Porto Rail station Sao Bento is a wonderful example of it. One does not need much time to drop in to the waiting room... More

A very beautiful old train station. All the interior walls are decorated with lovely paintings. Worth stopping by just for a look, even if you don't have a train to catch

Still a functional train station, impressive building with awesome murals. Very short, almost level walk, if you can don't miss this visit. Afterwards, just cross the street and take a stroll down "Paseo de las Flores" for a snack and refreshing drink...🍷✔

Old building decorated with tiles, representing scenes of the old centuries of Portugal. It's also called th central station where subway and trains departed and arrived. A nice spot to visit and learn about the history of the city.

What it makes this train station unique is the interior of the hall. Covered with blue tiles from top to bottom. It's a must.

I saw this station on the TV but I did not imagine that it was like that. Of course, the prettiest entrance of this beautiful city. If you arrive to Campanha station I strongly recommend you to get to Sao Bento by commuter train

When you first enter the Sao Bento train station you won't think that it is actually a train station. It is beautifully designed and the art work in the interior is very beautiful and unique.

We didn't travel by train, we came to see the tiles. Gorgeous murals and seemed to be an easy usable train system.
