Fodor's Expert Review Real Gabinete Portugues de Leitura

Centro Library/Archive
This evocative library, known as the Royal Reading Room, contains the largest collection of Portuguese literature outside of Portugal and was first established in 1837 as a Portuguese cultural centre during the reign of Portuguese emperor Joao Pedro II. It’s a joy to stroll through its soaring gothic stacks and soak up the Harry Potter-esque atmosphere.
