Wonderful building, the set for many movies and not just a train terminal, restaurants too, good photo opportunities and apparently an ideal spot for a marriage proposal.

The terminal itself is beautiful, but there is so much more to see. There is a great market, and lots of shops for about anything you would need. Definitely worth a stop if you're in the area.
