One of the most emblematic bookstores in the country (and the world) is right in the centre of Porto and is part of its historical heritage. Also known as the inspiring setting for JK Rowling’s Harry Potter, it was born in 1906 at number 144 Rua das Carmelites. And it remained there until today, with the neogothic architecture that characterizes it, the carved wood, the golden columns and the ornate ceilings that form a unique business card. But this historic building is not only to admire, but 300,000 books per year also come from the high shelves distributed on both floors.
Admission costs € 4, which can be discounted when you buy a book.
