Bertrand Livreiros in Chiado is the oldest bookstore in the world still in operation, but it keeps up with the times without a problem. Bertrand has a rotating selection of English-language books, including a solid variety of travel guides, but also books by Portuguese authors in English and New York Times bestsellers. It’s got an online store too, though we’ve never tried it out. Another location in Picoas Plaza (Rua Tomás Ribeiro and Rua Viriato) also offers a small but well-curated selection of English-language books, including Svetlana Alexievich’s Voices from Chernobyl.
