Lello Bookshop, Porto.
« WOW, look at that ! » « That » is the Livraria Lello and you have never seen anything like it. Although, come to think of it, it probably reminds you of somewhere…
Fall in love with this fabulous bookshop and the totally unique spectacle of an amazing interior architecture. This somptuous bookshop inspired (yes, that’s it !) the Harry Potter’s library in Hogwarts. In fact, J.K Rowling lived in Porto teaching English in the early 1990s. Remember those awesome stairs and the impressive mouldings ? Alas, photos and filming are strictly forbidden and the sales staff are very vigilant. So soak in as many impressions as you can and remember it always.
Rua das Carmelitas 144, Porto 4050 161, Portugal
