Updated: Jan 8, 2020


#LivrariaLello is located in Clérigos area of Porto city, where you can find also University of Porto and Torre dos Clerigos. The building of Lello bookshop is beautiful from outside and it’ll be a crime to do not visit this magical place.

The books are certainly overpriced, good marketing needs a lot of investments though.
