Sao Bento train station is located in the city of Porto in Portugal where I lived for a year and had the opportunity to take the trains to the most diverse cities in the interior of Portugal as Guimarães, Aveiro, Braga and Coimbra.
St. Benedict is considered one of the train stations, or train as the Portuguese like to talk, more beautiful in the world.
The station is a beautiful postcard of the city. For the port is worth knowing even if not use this means of transport. The station is small and you can meet her with a few minutes. It is located right in the city centre next to freedom square.
The tile of the Sao Bento Station
The great attraction of the place, are the more than 20 thousand ceramic tiles that cover its walls. The drawings depict the history of Portugal.
They are the work of artist Jorge Colaço and date of 1916. It took 11 years for the artist let it complete.
The trains arrive and depart from the station to the main northern cities of Portugal. To Lisbon you need to take the train in Campanhã station.
