Porto São Bento

This terminal station is located in the centre of city of Porto. Building is included in the historical part of the city which is a part of world heritage according to UNESCO. The São Bento station is natural gate to the old city centre. The building itself is an interesting target for tourists, especially its „azulejos“ (tiles) which picture the history of Portugal are the most frequently photographed symbol of the station.

The station has a good connection to city transport. There is a taxi rank in front of the building. Across the Praça de Almeida Garrett one can take a city bus (operator: STCP - Sociedade de Transportes Colectivos do Porto) and there is a metro station „São Bento“ on the D-line (yellow, connecting Hospital São João and João de Deus) near the railway station.

The station has 8 tracks, but both edge tracks have been removed. Each of 5 platforms has its own roof above and it is equipped with benches and bins. But most of the passengers either come directly to their train (this is the terminal station and trains are usually prepared about 15 minutes before their departure) or wait in a waiting room. Many passengers wait in front of the information board where they can check number of platform of their train.

Passengers can use a lot of shops, services and selling machines in the station. There is also machine for payments for parking. Parking fee is smaller than fee for left-luggages service... But the station subserves especially people who come to Porto every day to job or for tourists who come to the centre of Porto. So the amount of parking places is very limited.
