A train station can be much more than a place where you take a train or arrive at. São Bento railway station, located at the heart of Porto, is a perfect example of that. What makes this building of Neoclassical façade truly exceptional is its atrium, completely covered by magnificent tile panels. This train station was designed by Marques da Silva in the beginning of the 20th century. The tiles were conceived by painter Jorge Colaço, depicting episodes of Portuguese History, some of them related to the city of Porto. The quay porches and the station clock are also remarkable elements.
