Lello Bookstore, historic and very famous bookstore that inspired the author of Harry Potter.
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.
Stunning staircase and timber engraved cladding... use to get there when I was young... but now it is so popular there is always a queue so they can control the flux. Miss the days I could just walk in, but hey also so very proud to see people queuing for entering a library! So don’t leave without…
First open in 1881 it’s one of the oldest libraries in Portugal. The bookstore was frequented by JK Rowling, author of the Harry Potter series, when she taught English in Porto and is reported to be an inspiration for her writing.

“The Clerigos Tower is one of the paradigmatic architectural landmarks of Porto. The structure is, in fact, part of the Clerigos Church, representing its bell tower. The church proper was built between 1732 and 1750, but the construction works at the Clerigos Tower started no sooner than 1754, only to be completed in 1763. It was designed by Nicolau Nasoni, the Italian architect who left a strong artistic print on Porto since he also contributed, at least in part, to the design of sundry other landmarks of the city, such as the Porto Cathedral, the Church of Mercy and the very Clerigos Church. ￼The Clerigos Tower of Porto At the moment of its construction, the Clerigos Tower was the tallest building in Portugal. Thus, it amounts to some 76 meters in height, counting about 230 steps visitors can use in order to climb the six levels of the structure in order to get to the belfry and admire the view of Porto. In fact, the main tourist merit of the tower resides precisely in the panoramic views it provides over the city. However, visitors can also direct their attention to the architectural merits of the structure. It is an example of the Baroque style blending mild influences of the Tuscan bell towers that must have inspired Nasoni when he designed the Portuguese campanile.”

“When Googling this park, if you’re faced with a bunch of fiberglass dinosaurs, then you’re in the wrong Crystal Palace. Despite the lack of prehistoric models, these gardens are somewhat more exotic than what London has to offer. Not only does this verdant paradise have a maze of walkways, tree-lined waterways, sculptured topiary and a huge domed pavilion (all thanks to German landscape architect Emile David), but it overlooks the Douro River too.”

“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!”
