ferin is one of the oldest bookshops in Lisbon, Portugal. In the old centre of the city, chiado, Ferin is very well known by it's titles on history and philosophy and a wide variety of portuguese, french and english books. this bookshop was founded back in 1840 by a belgian family that still owns the business. the bookshop is beautiful and it has two floors, the 1st floor - were you can look at some wonderful and not so easy to find books, some of them hand-binded; the ground floor is a beautiful exhibition place that has a intense program of open conferences, book presentations and even film and music presentations. come and visit us!

This is a lovely old fashioned (in the best of senses) bookshop. The atmosphere, the display, the service, the titles - all splendid! It never disappoints, there is always one book (more likely several) which you cannot leave without... this is my experience!

This beautiful and quite large library offers a big number of books in Portuguese but also in English, and from what I've seen French and Spanish, but I bet there are also other languages here. It's a wonderful atmosphere and the staff is very helpful!...More

A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site,
Lisbon's downtown (the "Baixa Pombalina", or simply
"Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake
construction, having been rebuilt following the 1755
earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its
name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in
