One of the oldest bookstores in the country and one of the most coveted bookstores in the world, Lello is an important landmark of the city of Porto and a must-see for tourists visiting the city. Opened in 1906, the building boasts a neo-Gothic façade, standing out from the surrounding urban landscape. Inside, bookcases and ceilings are copiously worked out, with special mention being made of the extraordinary staircase leading to the first floor and the large stained glass window that bears the monogram with the Decus in labore Bookstore border. In 2016, the façade and the stained glass were carefully restored and restored to their original look and brightness.
