Main railway station in Porto in the main tourist area. Lots of tiles make this worth a visit in the traditional Portuguese style. Not too crowded and plenty of cafes in area. Nice to shade from heat.

Brilliant, both inside and out. The wall tiling is worth seeing. Fantastic station with 6 / 7 platforms.

The main lobby of this station near the Cathedral and Luis 1 bridge is well worth looking into for it's fantastic artworks of the classic blue and white tiles on every wall. Railway stations are often striking bits of architecture but I've never seen anything like this one

Well worth a look even if you are not taking a train. The tile murals depicted scenes from Portuguese history and commerce. Here "a picture is worth a thousand words."

The tile mosaics are amazing and for a free attraction worth a looksee.

Also, we left our cases there. Once we sussed out how the system worked, it was reasonably priced and easy to use.
