It is our absolute pleasure to feature the world’s most beautiful bookshop, an absolute pleasure. Bookshops are beautiful by nature, but few come close to matching the aesthetic wonder of Porto’s Livraria Lello, a love letter to literature that looks like it was designed by a super team of the world’s most iconic artists. This has been the state of play since 1906 and will be for the rest of time, if there is a God. Thousands visit every day, which might be a bit too much for some, but this is the sort of place that transcends mass tourism. It is easy to forget that this is a house of literature, which says a lot about its beauty. So yes, visit Livraria Lello, take a million photographs, fall in love, buy a book, make plans to return.
