Weekly Photo Challenge – Curve


Photo Mar 02, 10 03 27 AMBibliophiles visiting Porto would be remiss in skipping Livraria Lello; those of the Harry Potter persuasion will gleefully pace through J.K. Rowling’s reported inspiration for Flourish & Blott’s, but the magic of this bookstore lies well outside Diagon Alley. The rich, dark wood carvings mingle with the scent of old books and the meandering staircase to exude a coziness than only the most venerable of bookstores can claim. More practically, those who don’t speak (or read) Portuguese will find a smaller selection of English-language books, and if hunger pangs strike before you’re ready to rejoin the muggle world, there is a small cafe on the upper floor as well.
