Ler Devagar

Ler Devagar is a quirky bookshop and cafe with two levels, stacked floor to ceiling with book in Portuguese and English. The perfect calm spot to sit and have a conversation or read a book. Upstairs you'll find a vinyl record store and several industrial machines left over from the days when the building was part of a textile factory.


After a day of sightseeing, find a table at a pavement cafe on Rossio Square. Savour one (or two!) Portuguese custard tart and restore your energy. Take in the milling of the crowd with the backdrop of the Baixa neighbourhood — the flat city centre that dates from the 18th century.
