Even if you dont intend to take a train just go to have a look at the fantastic tiled forecourt area, you wont be dissapointed and maybe like me you will wonder why our stations cannot be as impressive.

This is the main train station in Porto. The inside is covered with beautiful blue painted tile work depicting the history of Porto.

You need to learn the story of this station. And the meaning of the drawings on the tiles. But it's a must see. Enjoy!

Have a look in the station concourse. Fantastic murals made from tiles. Typical European railway station with beggars and dodgy characters. Visit in the day.

The tiles are amazing. Well worth going to see when in Porto. Additionally, a great looking building.

Upon our travels in Porto, approaching the Douro River, we came across the Sao Bento Train Station. Truly worthwhile to just walk in and take a peak at some beautiful architecture and tremendous tiled walls.
