This is a great bookstore located in central Lisbon. They have a great section for English books and the staff is friendly. At the very back, there's also a small cafe. Very nice place to spend some time in if you like books.

This is a lovely old fashioned (in the best of senses) bookshop. The atmosphere, the display, the service, the titles - all splendid! It never disappoints, there is always one book (more likely several) which you cannot leave without... this is my experience!

This beautiful and quite large library offers a big number of books in Portuguese but also in English, and from what I've seen French and Spanish, but I bet there are also other languages here. It's a wonderful atmosphere and the staff is very helpful!...More

A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site,
