Maputo train station: magic, romance and melancholy

Maputo surprises visitors at every turn with its architectural mix. Surrounded by colossal rationalist buildings in the center of Baixa, is the train station, considered one of the finest in the world. The station was designed by Eiffel in the year 1910. The elegant main building is accessed by 2 platforms covered by a wrought iron ceiling full of precious ornaments and supported by columns and beams that are decorated. Here and there there are details of another time: clocks, huge ceiling fans, lovely Portuguese tiles, carved wooden doors, iron benches, large bells ... As if this were not enough, people are sleeping on the tracks steam locomotives. The trains, with names such as 'Botswana Railways', suggest travel through remote and colonial Africa. Filled with magic, romance and melancholy... Fortunately, nowadays some of their old offices were recycled. You can find a Center of Art and Culture, in another the Kampfumo Bistro, a bar-restaurant.
