Neighborhood: Centro

Once upon a time a prominent railway station, the Estação Leopoldina today lies unused, closed, and empty. Opened in 1897, this railway station was built in the honor of the Barão de Mauá, and quickly became, and remained, an important commuting line till 2004, when it was closed. You will not see any flurry of tired and exhausted feet, running to catch a train home or to work here anymore, as the station has become more or less a depot. However, occasionally, the station is opened for special events, be it a concert, an exhibition, fair, an so on.
