Explore the Sao Bento Train Station

Examine the breathtaking patterns of the azujelos tiles in the Sao Bento rail station. While gazing at its walls, one can't help but wonder, how much time and effort it took to paint each individual piece, depicting numerous events of Portugal's history. Dominated by blue and white, the fashionable colors of the time, the train station provides an undeniably authentic sightseeing experience.

The awe-inspiring landmark is actually an active train station, boasting over 20 000 ceramic tiles, an art form specific of Portugal. The craft of making azujelos was introduced by the Moors back in the 13th century and has continued to be an inseparable part of the cultural heritage in the country.

Please be attentive while wandering the Sao Bento station and beware of moving trains.
