The blue and white ceramic tiles truly are beautiful. The tiles depict different moments in Portugal's history. It gives off the feeling of being in a palace room.

Located downtown, the main entry offers you an astonhising set of typical tiles, that are simply breath taking. Don't forget also to enjoy old train signs, lamps and other epoque figures all over the station... Superb piece of art

The tile is just breath taking. This world famous train station is a functioning train station but it is also a work of art and shouldn't be missed.

The lovely decorations inside the train station make it a place you can't miss in Porto. The gates, clock and decorations are still the original ones. Good when it rains, it's covered.

Hi I can remember the switch at Campanha was free. There are clear signs when you stop on the track where to go underneath the rail to the other side of the track. It was free because we didn't exit the station but merely... More
