A great (free!) photo opportunity - well worth a look. Nothing more to write but find that 50 characters is the minimum so am now waffling in order to reach that total blah blah blah

What a fascinating station full of old tile murals flanking every wall and even ceilings. A must visit to photo.

Very interesting mosaic tile depicting Portugal's history on the walls of the train station. Great detail and quite old.

The history of Portugal painted in blue on tiles inside a train station. Very nice.
Avoid to visit it during night as train stations attract the best samples of human civilization.

If you have the chance to visit the station twice you should go during the day and back again at night just so you can see the difference in the light from daylight to artificial light, just to compare what happens to all the wonderful tiles on the walls.
