Luz Station was built to serve as headquarters for British-owned Sao Paulo Railway. The interior reflects the influence of classic late-Victorian style of architecture and was constructed in 1901 from material transported entirely from Britain. Back in 20th century, Luz Station was a symbol of both Brazil’s flourishing coffee plantation and its industrialization. The station was built by the famous British architect Charles Henry Driver and fell into disrepair in late 20th century. It was repaired and reopened in 2004 on the 450th anniversary of Sao Paulo city. Presently Luz Station serves as a railway station for the people of Sao Paulo connecting one main line that joins Santos Harbour to Jundiaí.
Luz Station also houses a small but interesting museum known as Museu da Língua Portuguesa which exhibits the growth and evolution of Portuguese language since the ancient times. Luz Station is a perfect place to visit if you want to know more about Sao Paulo’s history. Till now a large number of Paulistas depend on Luz Station for their weekday commutes. The beautiful clock tower outside Luz Station sets the time for everyone in the city of Sao Paulo.
