​What to Know About Sao Bento Railway Station​

​​​Although the title of the main train station of Porto belongs to Campanha, Sao Bento Railway station has something else to pride itself on - the spectacular interiors and fascinating history. The beautiful building that houses the station was once home to the 16th-century monastery, the Convent of Sao Bento da Ave Maria.

​Unfortunately, the original building was demolished in 1896, but it's hard to regret it, as the beautiful neoclassical complex that was built instead is truly a work of art.

Even if you are not planning to take a train in Porto, Sao Bento rail station is worth stopping by to admire its amazing decorations. The main hall is a splendid sight as it's adorned with over 2000 azulejo tiles, depicting the history of Portugal.
