PORTO – Estação S. Bento

So this is the famous S. Bento station in downtown Porto. To tell you the truth I’d walked passed it plenty of times, but never gone inside. Having now been inside I see what a huge mistake I’ve made in the past. The station is gorgeous, the main hall is covered from floor to ceiling (almost) in white and blue tiles depicting several scenes. Because of their age, they have now been covered in a thin gauze like fabric to enable you to still see the tiles, while at the same time protecting them. So they aren’t actually as dirty as they look. I’ll definitely be visiting the station again next time I’m in downtown. We even caught a break when we were inside, because if we’d been outside another 2 minutes we’d have gotten completely drenched. A shower like we hadn’t had that day yet, came down not minutes after we’d entered the station and so we walked around for a while to wait for it to pass.
