Located right in the heart of Macau’s historic district, Livraria Portuguesa–Portuguese Bookshop–is a two-story bookshop that carries both English and Portuguese titles, including some hard-to-find Macanese cookbooks. Livraria Portuguesa has been in the same place since it was first established in Macau. This bookshop is small but filled with contemporary titles and some hidden gems related to Portugal and Macau history.
Livraria Portuguesa also stocks gifts and several stationery items, like imported Portuguese soaps and perfumes, calendars, pens and notebooks, mugs and more. Founded over 30 years ago, this library is one of the few places where you can brush up on the reliable Portuguese language. Besides being a bookshop, this venue also hosts events such as concerts, conferences and performances on a regular basis.
Opening hours: Monday–Saturday, 11:00am–7:00pm
