Not your average train station; it boasts gorgeous main hall richly decorated with marvelous blue and white glazed tiles. The scenes represent different episodes in the history of Porto and Portugal. Simply stunning!

Train stations aren't supposed to be tourist destinations - they're the places you have to endure in order to get to tourist destinations. Sao Bento is a definite exception to that rule - the entrance hall to this station is truly a breathtakingly beautiful place...More
