Livraria Lello Bookstore, Porto

Though it’s a hassle to get a ticket, I managed to visit one of the most beautiful bookstores in the world. Built in 1906, a mix of Art Nouveau and Neo-Gothic styles.

J.K. Rowling once lived in Porto, no doubt getting some inspiration from this magical setting.

She named Salazar Slytherin after the Portuguese dictator Antonio de Salazar.
