波圖新地標:萊羅書店 (Livraria Lello)

Sean Dodson 今年年初在英國《衛報》選出他心目中的全球十佳書店(Top Shelves),對葡萄牙波圖市的萊羅書店(Livraria Lello)有以下描述:

Proving that purpose-built bookshops can be every bit as beautiful as converted buildings, the divine Livraria Lello in Porto has been selling books in the most salubrious of settings since 1881. Featuring a staircase to heaven and beautifully intricate wooden panels and columns, stained glass ceilings and books - lots of lovely books.

- Livraria Lello
- (2017-2-19補加) 因著Harry Potter效應,萊羅書店已變成人潮洶湧的旅遊景點。從2015年起,書店引入觀光客入場費 (Gail at Large: Livrario Lello: An Update for 2017)


我有幸在九月中曾到 Livraria Lello 一遊,覺得它古色古香,小巧精致。它同時是波圖的驕傲,遊客的必遊景點,店前店內經常擠滿遊客走動拍照(用廣東話講,即係搞搞震,無幫襯),真不知它如何做生意。
