Porto was the last stop on our road trip from Biarritz to Porto in 2015. I had been told to visit the railway station to look at the murals on display. These are quite spectacular and well worth a visit. It is now a world heritage site and opened in 1904. The murals are the work of artist Jorge Colaco. The murals represent historic events in and daily life. They comprise approximately 20,000 azulejo tiles.
