PORTO CITY COUNCIL AWARDS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL BOOKSHOP IN THE WORLD

2023-07-21
On June 9th, Livraria Lello received a medal of merit awarded by the Porto City Council.
Every year, a selection of emblematic figures and places in the city of Porto is carried out for the attribution of medals by the Municipality of Porto. The municipal medals distinguish “individual or legal persons, national or foreign, who are notable for their merits or civic achievements". The medal of merit was awarded to 36 citizens and two entities, among them, Livraria Lello.

Livraria Lello carries more than a century of history and stories, embedded in the architectural space and also in the bookseller's knowledge that shapes the experience of those who visit and those who read it.
Aware of what it is, its DNA, and what it dreams of being, it establishes commitments with the Community and the World.

Seeing the work being recognized by Invicta is something that makes us truly honored. We promise to continue to invest in innovation and dynamism, disseminating culture and reading in the city, in the country, and in the world.
