Lello & Irmao bookstore

For some people it’s the most beautiful bookshop in the world, for others the set design of the Harry Potter books, and for others it is a paradise for tourists who are passionate about literature.
Lello & Irmao is located in the heart of Oporto and was founded in 1869 under the name of Livraria International de Ernesto Chardron. It represents a real journey through time.
The place recalls an English library whose architecture is one of the most emblematic examples of Portuguese neo-Gothic.

Since two years the entrance fee is 3 euros, but the paid amount can be converted into a discount on the purchase of books within the library itself.
