Tips from locals
The Livraria Lello bookstore in Porto is one of the world's oldest bookstores, frequently ranked as one of the most beautiful bookstores in the world, and a top place to visit in Portugal.
A bit busy mainly during the summer but worth a visit. 5 EUR entrance fee but can use as credit to purchase any book.
This is the famous library related with Harry Potter. We recommend to book tickets in advance as there are always big lines to get in.
Considered one of world’s most beautiful bookstores, it's also called the Harry Potter bookstore. There are so many visitors these days that you are now charged to enter, but this is discounted from any purchase

Point of Interest
“2019: the building is currently going under massive refurbishment which I cannot wait to see the result as a Porto inhabitant but also as an Architect. So far the time being, you can still enjoy the very fresh food producers stand in the relocated Mercado do Bolhão a little further away. Open on a daily basis and always fresh!”
