It is not often that a train station is visited for the station itself but Sao Bento warrants a visit even if not travelling by train. The tiles and mosaics are beautiful.

I wouldn't go out of your way but if you're in the area it's worth 5 mins to pop in and see the beautiful tiled walls

This architecturally striking building is a functioning railway station. The most interesting feature is the tiling in the main concourse depicting the history of Portugal. Very definitely worth a visit.

Well it’s stunning to look at, but it helps to have a guide to explain what all the painted tiles mean.. truely beautiful, but so many people in there that we were getting in the way of the commuters
