Librería Bertrand (Bertrand bookshop)

Book quest.

In a city where literary cafes have had so much prominence, it is not surprising that bookstores abound. Despite the rise of e-readers and tablets, there are still many traditional bookstores for that romantic reader attached to paper. Bertrand is a reference venue, where you can find any book no matter how obscure its author or theme. This surely explains why the store opens branches throughout the country. If you forgot to bring reading, swing by and you will find a wide variety in different languages. The original site of the humble bookstore was at Rua de Loreto but, after its total destruction upon the 1775 earthquake, it reopened on busy Rua Garrett, in Chiado. You can also order online at
