759. Porto Days 3 & 4 | Livraria Lello & Majestic Cafe

Porto view

I'm a bit behind on my Porto posts as we are already leaving tomorrow! I wish we had more time here because I really like Porto and also, I don't want to pack and take another flight again lol. I used to LOVE flights but now I find them exhausting, especially during COVID and certain restrictions. Tomorrow we go to Las Palmas (Canary Islands) and will stay for a month. Back to hot and sunny weather!

Porto loft

Here is our place here in Porto which I really love. It's like a loft - really spacious, nicely designed and PERFECT location at Largo Sao Domingos. We get live music through our window every day and tons of nice restaurants at our doorstep. It's also very centrally located so a few minutes from the river and also walking distance to the other major attractions/streets. I highly recommend it if you are coming to Porto! (The listing on Airbnb)

One of the attractions here in Porto is Livraria Lello, the "most beautiful bookstore in the world". The entrance fee is 5 euros (can be deducted from a book purchase). There was a line up when we went. I think we waited about 20 minutes. Now they only let very few people in at a time. They have exclusive Livraria Lello editions of some classic books. I think the entrance fee + price of their books are pretty steep (my book cost 16 euros) though. The store is pretty small and I think we spent about 10 minutes in there.

One night we had dinner at a restaurant called O Fado. It was really good. There is live music while you eat (there were 3 performances when we were there) of traditional Portuguese/Fado music.

  1. I wanted to visit the bookshop but the queue was too long. Next time I hope!

    1. I couldn't believe there was a line when we went..I can't imagine how much longer it would be during non-COVID times! lol
