  • A temple to the Letters and Arts of the city and the world. Since 1906, Livraria Lello shares intact the beauty of literature that only good books can keep for successive decades. The bookshop also preserves the beauty that makes it an architectonic and patrimonial icon of the city that is widely recognized internationally. One of the oldest Portuguese bookshops, Livraria Lello is an emblematic place of the city of Porto, a mandatory visit for those who pass by here. Has been named one of the most beautiful bookshops in the world by the world press (acclaimed by Time magazine, CNN, Lonely Planet, The Guardian, among many others). The magic staircase, the stained glass window, the shelves from top to bottom and the leather-covered wooden benches tell a lot of stories of the great names that have passed by it. The interior of Livraria Lello remains faithful to the original, being a space that keeps the memory of the past, but which has always been able to adapt to the present. Livraria Lello is a place of Knowledge and of the Book. It was born to be a bookshop and thus it remained, true to the identity that created it more than 100 years ago. The growing flow of tourists in the city has not alienated her from her true identity: a bookshop that turns tourists into readers, an ambassador of the Portuguese culture and identity. The bookshop has adapted to a new reality, embraced tourism and is today one of the bookshops that sell more books as a street shop.
