Photographer's Note

São Bento Station is the central station of Oporto and is famous for the tiled murals in its main concourse, as depicted above. The station was opened in 1910 and the hilly and rocky terrain of the city meant that the lines into the platforms lead immediately into a lengthy tunnel. Services are therefore limited and it is Campanhã on the city's outskirts, which is the city's main station. All services from São Bento call at Campanhã but not vice versa.
