Prepare to stand in line before entering one of the most beautiful bookstores in the world. Livraria Lello has been in business in 1906 and is Porto's most popular landmark and it is well worth the wait time. Harry Potter fans may recognize it as it was a major inspiration for JK Rowling when she was developing the series. Grab your camera and snap some photos of the stunning staircase or purchase a book as a souvenir.
Portugal is famous for the Azulejo Tiles. Introduced to the city by the Moors, the beautiful blue tiles can be found covering the facades of many beautiful buildings in Porto. The Igreja do Carmo and Sao Bento Railway Station have some of the most intricate designs and even tell a story through the paintings on the tiles. Wander around the city admiring the detailed mosaics that line most of the streets.
