Old Bookshops of Portugal
Portugal is a haven for lovers of old books, as well those who like to sketch in shops—I love both. There is a great range of premises and prices, from high-end to street vendors. I’ve been inspired by the excellent series of introductory symposium posts by Paulo Mendes to contribute a specialised footnote if visitors can drag themselves away from scheduled activities. Did I say Portuguese people are friendly? A short stroll up through Porto’s Santa Catarina district brings us to Manuel Ferreira alfarrabista (a term denoting more than a mere shop, but a dealer in antiquarian books, named after the tenth-century Turkish philosopher Al-Farabi). At Rua Dr Alves da Veiga, 89, Herculano Ferreira and his daughter Mariana tend an amazing specialist business with barely a book to be seen. Mac meets Manueline here. You state your interests and books are produced from an extensive stock." [Guest post by Richard Aitken in Porto and Lisbon, Portugal] 9th international Urban Sketchers Symposium, Porto July 2018]

Privilégio dos cidadãos da Cidade do Porto
"Os cidadãos do Porto eram privilegiados para poderem andar armados por todo o reino. As armas, vindas para o Porto, não pagavam decima nem sisa." — in «Mosaico» de Camilo Castelo Branco.
