Lello Bookshop, Porto, Portugal Opened in 1906, Lello is one of the world’s most beautiful bookstores, thanks largely to its centrepiece: a glossy red staircase with carved wooden banisters that leads up to a glass atrium. The stairs are just as beautiful from underneath, with carved leaf-like flourishes and the same bluish-green and gold paint as the ceiling above it. Look for lovely neo-Gothic and Art Deco elements in the rest of the shop as you browse.
