Lello e Irmão

The baroque book shop

We continue our trip in Porto, at the visit to the over 100 year old book shop Lello e Irmão. Founded by the brothers José and António Lello in 1906, the book shop is famously know world wide for its incredible fantasy like charm. As the centerpiece in the bookshop is the charismatic staircase, that leads you to the second floor, with magnificent views of the beautiful stained glass window with the families motto ‘Decus in labore’ – which means ‘dedication to the work’. This is truly a stop worth while for any kind of book lover.
