This building was inaugurated in 1916 and is made of stone with tiles in the interior. On the outside, the building presents architectural lines and decoration that are typical of the neoclassical style.The station was built at the beginning of the 20th century in the same place where the nuns of the Convent of Sāo Bento de Ave Maria once lived. The first train to pass through the station didn’t arrive until 1896. The Sāo Bento station is a few metres from Saint Anthony’s Church and is very close to the Sá da Bandeira Theatre. The area is full of monuments and incredibly interesting historical locations for those discovering Porto for the first time. The Torre dos Clerigos tower, one of the national symbols of the city of Porto, is also found in the historical centre. It is difficult to find parking in the old town of Porto. However, you can comfortably park your vehicle nearby. Not far from this point of interest is a Saba car park. Saba car parks are available 24 hours a day and have modern facilities that include Wi-Fi.
