livraria ferin

Books, Prints and Posters

A family owned shop for over six generations, this is one of oldest booksellers in Lisbon after Bertrands. Once inside you find it hard to leave the stacks of warn leather-bound classics, and the soft smell of old paper. The tattered wooden shelves and display tables that have been installed since they opened in the early 1800‘s, are filled with old maps, vintage poster prints, foreign literature and art books that you’ll want to spend hours perusing.
