Porto’s Magnificent Sao Bento Station—Five Photos!


In my Railway Guide to Guide to Europe, I featured Porto’s Sao Bento Station.

On my recent visit to Porto with fellow photographer Denis McCabe, I took the opportunity to re-photograph this stunning railway terminal. I’ve included a few of these views below.

Here’s an excerpt from my text on Sao Bento Station:

Sao Bento  . . . was designed by architect Marques da Silva and constructed in the early 20th century.  . . .Portuguese stations are known for their elaborate blue painted-tile decorations but none is more elaborate than Sao Bento. Inside the main hall allegorical tile murals by Jorge Colaço depict the history of transportation and events in Portuguese history.
