This will take you all of five minuets to walk around and is a must. The paintings that are done in tiles are fabulous. Very centrally located, so step in and take a peek. It's free. It's a working train stain.

There is a reason that this station is on the list of things one must see in Porto. It had the most lovely mosaic tiles and best of all it had a money exchange office for my friend who needed Euros. Do not miss it....More

This station is in the center of old Porto, and is easy to access from the city, and easy to use for transit. The tiles in the main lobby are amazing and well worth a trip to see.

Really, this place was spectacular - the painted tiles in the main entrance were gorgeous! And the entire train station is just very well maintained and so charming.

The tile work,azulejo, is so beautiful inside. It's a small train station but majestic and the area around it bustles with activity. Great area for cafe sitting and people watching. Go to Natas Lisbon for the best fresh and warm Natas.

I would highly recommend taking a look inside this beautiful train station. If you want to see a good example of the Portugues blue tiles this is the place to see them in a vernacular setting.

Worth a quick stop in to view the beautiful tiles. It’s a relatively small station but conveniently located in the middle of the city.

Visited the large entrance porch to admire the beautiful tiles. Well worth crossing the busy roads to get there. Considered using it when departing Porto but connections to stations with inter-city services were infrequent.

The much-larger-than-life tile work inside the Sao Bento Station is beautiful. Take your time to look at the panels, section by section. They tell a fascinating story about the country's history and its many agricultural and wine-growing traditions. This is definitely one of the highlights...More

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
