​Train station

A beautiful building from 1927 for the train station, in a line connecting to Lisbon since 1861, was recently classified as a public monument. In 1979 a secondary building (“Cocheira de carruagens”) was transformed in a museum, with several engines and crafts connected to the railroad operation and maintenance.

​ For those waiting for the train, with time enough to see more than the beautiful panels of tiles documenting in the station history and traditional activities, it is a excellent solution to pass the time.
