Covas

This is the first station after Guimarães. The Covas-station is located by the road N105 connecting Guimarães with Porto. This road is also attached to the A11 highway. Location of Covas suggests that is closely linket to Guimarães.

The station is located at the edge of the Covas village. Covas is a small and compact place. Surprisingly the centre is created with block-houses and one side of the station adjoins to this centre. The other part of the station goes over to the countryside with farms, fields and gardens.

The station (and road which goes along) is border between buit-area and countryside. The station has only one railway track and two roofed platforms on both sides of the track. But the equipment was unfortunately damaged - signs of the station name, walls are decorated with graffiti. I guess this is because of missing system of cameras that is possible to see in other stations of the line.
