Half day tour in Porto

After letting you know where are the best activities in Porto for families with kids and the best family restaurants in the city, it is time to tell you about Papa livros, one of the few English children bookstores in Porto!

Papa Livros: the one and only English children bookstore in Porto!

Papa livros is a little gift to the heart, it is the best way I can describe this children bookstore in Porto. It has a wall decorated with dozens of books, another with beautiful illustrations of children’s books and a very large window, which a view towards Rua de Miguel Bombarda.

Beyond the wonderful selection of books (available in Portuguese, English, Spanish and German) which includes the ones from their own Publishing company, called TCHARAM, you can count on many plastic expression workshops, book launches, story sessions and other delightful activities for families with kids.

I hope you enjoy this little heaven as much as I do!

    I happened to visit this place on my trip to Porto and I bought a beautiful book, ‘A Baleia’ by Benji Davies, even though I don’t understand Portuguese. Unfortunately I didn’t get the name of this store, so I began my search. Finally! I found this post and the name of the store!! Yay! I feel so happy now:) Thank you so much. I hope to visit this place again. 🙂

      I am really glad this article helped you to find this children bookstore, I know EXACTLY how you felt – it is so frustrating when we found a bookstore we love, and we want to come back or at least to recommend it to our friends but we can’t recall the name! I hope you can visit it again soon enough! 🙂 Cheers, Sara.
