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.

It seems like there are no direct trains from The Oriente Rail Station in Lisbon to the Sao Bento Station in Porto. You will first have to take a train to Campanhã railway station and then take a connecting train to Sao Bento.Report Abuse
