Book Shops in Porto

Hello,

I have a free afternoon in Porto in June, in which I need to visit as many bookshops as possible.

A quick Google search showed Livraria Lello, which looks incredible, but I really need shops with a section dedicated to children's books.

Does anybody have any recommendations?

Thanks in advance,

Tom

A student I met in Porto buys some fairly obscure books at FNAC, which has a few locations in Porto (Rua Sta. Caterina being most central, I believe).

Just thought of another one, Livraria Bertrand. They will have a children's book section.

They have shops all over the country and various in Porto. Here's a link for an overview: http://www.bertrand.pt/livrarias-bertrand

Here's another:

Rua de Cedofeita nº 98

4050-173 Porto - Portugal

Also, on Rua da Conceição, not sure about the exact address, sorry, you'll find an used book store with a lot of old children's books and I remember walking by a bookstore with a lot of children's books on Rua do Rosário, again not sure about the address.

Hi, We just went to the Livraria Lello (May 2013). We were also looking for children's books. The children's section was small but seemed to have a good selection. We bought a picture book and it was only 5 euros! Must have been on sale? This store is very, very beautiful. It's worth a visit just to see the interior. It's on every tourist book so lot's of people were just looking around and taking pictures so it can be a little crowded. I read on tripadvisor that the store is thinking of charging for entry. When we went, they were not. I wouldn't have minded paying though....
