A railway station from a bygone era, the foyer is amazing, and well worth a look. Tiled from floor to ceiling, with beautiful stained glass windows

Just a nice station in the city centre of Porto, worth a visit if you're close. Nothing too special.

I'm not sure about the numbers of commuters but the reception hall of this historical train station was full of people examining the walls and taking photographs.

The most beautiful portuguese railway station of all times. In the lobby check the impressive hand made tails.

We were fortunate to be taken into the booking hall by the Porto Walking Tour What a story there is on the walls and the construction of the building

This rail station is known by its walls decoration. It has beautiful 'azulejos' work Portugal History. It's a must in Porto's city center.

Located right in the middle of the old town, this impressive building can't be missed. The entrance area is completely decorated with tiled motives. Very nice and definitely worth going to to see. Otherwise no special observations. A station is a station.

Hi I can remember the switch at Campanha was free. There are clear signs when you stop on the track where to go underneath the rail to the other side of the track. It was free because we didn't exit the station but merely... More
