In the entry way of the train center, there is the most amazing array of tile work that shows some of the history of Portugal. It doesn't take long to look around (although you could spend quite some time looking at all the amazing detail)....More

This station is worth a visit even if you’re not taking a train. The tile work through the entire station is amazing and very Insta-worthy.

We went twice to savour the blue tiles decorating the entrance hall. One of the worlds most attractive stations. You get a real sense of the country's history from the scenes portrayed in the lobby.

Very Beautiful Tiles on the inside. Worth visit even if you do not need to take a train. Short visit. You don't need too much time for it.

Went with a tour group to see the tiles so had the explanations of the scenes. Even if not traveling on the train it's worth a look if you like traditionally decorated spaces.

This is an interesting side trip as you wander Porto. Beautiful tile murals that detail the history of Porto. It’s easy to just wander around and trace the history of Porto as you move from one mural to the next. Lots of activity going going...More

The front of the station building and the entrance are excellent examples of early Portugese tile work it is well worth a visit if you are at the Cathedral

Lots of local trains but seeing the interior f this station is a ‘must.’ Reasonable cafe bar and friendly staff. The ceramic tiled murals portray the history of Portugal and are a lesson in their own right, whether you enjoy art, architecture or European history.

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
