Great station

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.

The tiles are handmade and tell history of Porto. Gorgeous to look at. It's also a great central location to store luggage for the day. It has large lockers in a bright, clean area. Little tip...take a photo of your locker receipt. You need the code to open your locker. It saved us as we lost the reception slip. From... More
