About Rail Station Sao Bento, Porto
Rail Station Sao Bento is one of the most beautiful stations in the world. It was built in the early 1900s. It was built on the site of a 16th century Benedictine monastery ‘Sao Bento do Ave Maria’ which also lent its name to the station.
King Carlos I initiated the construction of this station. The beauty of the Sao Bento station lies in its heavily detailed French architecture and tiled interiors. The main hall is lined with about 20,000 mind blowing blue and white tiles depicting the history of Portugal and the evolution of transportation in the country.
It took Jorge Colaco 11 years to complete the entire tile work.
The station offers regional train connections from Porto.

The huge tile murals are stunning of course. But even the ticket sales people are immensely knowledgable and helpful. This is an important must see place in Porto, very central and an extremely important transportation point.
The interior of the beautiful 19th century São Bento railway station looks almost like a museum.
Beautiful building of an old sisters covenant turned into a railway station.
Railway Station built in the end of 19th century It´s famous for its luscious tile panels, situated in the central atrium, mainly representing portugal history themes. It deserves a visit
🇬🇧Not just a railway station it's also an art gallery with all the walls decorated. Very nice to see. 🇮🇹Non è una semplice stazione è anche molto artistica con le sue pareti decorate.
