The Lello bookstore in Porto has always been distinguished by the architecture of the facade and interior decoration. The history of the bookstore begins at the end of the 19th century. There lived at that time in Porto a certain Jose Lello, who was passionate about reading and music. Immersed in the vicissitudes of the life of literary heroes, empathizing with them, Jose passionately dreamed of selling books. And his dream came true. In 1881, he opened the first bookstore on Almada Street together with his brother Antonio.

However, the world fame was brought to him by J. K. Rowling, the author of the Harry Potter books. Legend has it that she was so impressed by the beauty of Lello that she transferred him to the pages of a novel about wizards.
