The Estação de Comboio de São Bento (Train Station of São Bento) is one of the must-visit places if you are in Porto. This station was built during the 19th century over the remains of an old convent.

Its stately façade attracts passers-by, but the interior is even better, with a hall adorned with more than 20,000 hand-painted blue tiles portraying the history of Portugal.

Due to its incredible location in the city centre, it’s almost certain you will go by it several times a day, but don’t just see its façade, go inside!

From this station depart trains towards the vineyards and nearby towns such as Braga, Viana do Castelo, or Guimarães.
