Description

S. Bento Station is much more than just a place of arrivals and departures, of people rushing to catch the next train. It is something worthwhile to watch in detail, to visit. Many tourists look for it due to its beauty.

Both the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century were characterised by an expansion of the railways. The station occupies the place of a convent (Convento de S. Bento de Avé Maria), justifying its name.

From an artistic point of view, we highlight the approximately 20 000 tiles by the painter Jorge Colaço. They show scenes from the History of Portugal, everyday life and the evolution of transport. The light enters through large stained glass, which combine glass and cast iron.

From the architectural point of view, the building has a French influence. Because of its charm, it is a must-see visit.
