The line to get in here was long but well worth the wait. The upstairs books are available to students, but the downstairs are off limits to everyone. The original library was only a single story and had a flat ceiling. They raised the ceiling to create the second level in 1860.

A beautiful day in Porto, Portugal in August 2013. The buildings in this part of the city are practically built on top of each other creating a beautiful effect from across the Douro River.
