We got there at 10:07am and the line to enter was already an hour long, but at least we bought our tickets online beforehand because the line to buy tickets was even longer! Don’t know why they don’t just let you buy tickets at the door. We also had to put all our bags in a locker, make sure you have a Euro or else you can’t use the lockers/get the key. There are 2 cute cafes right next to the Livraria so get in line early and enjoy a delicious pastry and coffee while you wait in line :)

When you are lucky there is no queue, buy your tickets first!!! Beautiful shop but not everything you see is wood!! Among others the stairs decoration isn't. Worth visit.

What a fabulous bookstore. Queue up and pay to get in but really worth it. The inspiration for the Harry Potter books

Not only for all Harry Potter's lovers, this library is littlerally an artistic aged rare pearl. A wooden baroque central staircase, middleage style books glass cases inspire a suggestive atmosphere.
A real playground for all books lovers, kids and adults.

Had a great time in this bookstore, once I'd got past the queue of course. The interior is absolutely beautiful with beautifully deep red stairs, and a great selection of books in various languages. People were restoring books and an author was there to publicise his works. A great experience despite there being lots of people. The stairs supposedly inspired the moving staircases in the Harry Potter books as well as the book store.
