Very old building made the Portuguese during colonization, must visit for appreciation of the Architecture. If you love trains you can visit the museum to understand more of the story about the trains stations in Mozambique.

It is an architectural beauty and the Square in front of it adds to its grandeur. The Station houses a museum on development of transportation in Mozambique. A very well documented and maintained museum. It is worth visiting.

It is mostly renovated now so it is so beautifully restored in green and white which really shows all the fantastic details. The clocks are very impressive.
