São Bento Railway station

The São Bento Railway Station is an early twentieth century building that is worth a visit, but not just for its architecture by the architect Marques da Silva, who also designed other important works of the city. It features a glass and cast iron roof, but its centerpiece is the remarkable set of 20 000 painted tiles that covers the lobby of the station by the painter Jorge Colaço.

The murals illustrate the evolution of transports as well as scenes from Portuguese life and history. The railway station was built where the Convent of São Bento de Avé-Maria once stood. It links Porto to such historic centers as the cities of Braga and Guimarães, as well as to the landscape and the unique nectars of the Douro wine region.
