Sao Bento Railway Station Windows

São Bento is Porto’s central station and is often described as one of the most beautiful train stations in Europe or even in the whole world .

This station is in the city centre, so we used it to travel locally and probably walked past it several times during our stay there.

The São Bento Railway Station was opened to the public in 1916 on the site of a former Benedictine monastery. The main hall is spectacular with over 20,000 tiles that reflect the history of Portugal.
