Train Station

I love old train stations. The one at la Rochelle is splendid and the one in Porto with its blue tile was fabulous.

Blue tile and some in different colours up above. The tile at the top tells a history of transport.

Another view.

The lower panels feature Portuguese history, and landscapes.

A closeup. It looks a bit like china from the Netherlands. The Dutch did indeed import their Delftware worldwide including into Portugal but soon local artists made their own. The tiling, by the way, was created by Jorge Colaço, a famous Portuguese azulejo artist.

Little trains here and there.

This was outside the train station, some people selling roasted chestnuts. As we approached the station, I thought something was on fire there was so much smoke.
