This is a beautiful little castle town like so many in Portugal. After the climb to the top of the hill and castle, it was a nice place to have a quick respite. Lots of trees and flowers make for a picturesque setting.

The station was inaugurated in 1916. It contains 20 thousand tiles dating from 1905-1916. The tiles show historic Portugal with landscapes and historic events. The pictures depicted are very realistic and colorful. Well worth seeing.
