Photo blog: Porto Day 2 & a few Harry Potter references.

We visited a lot of good places on our walking tour the first day, so we decided to go back to some of it on the second day and spend more time appreciating it since we didn't get to do that on our walking tour because of time constraint.

São Bento Train Station. The tiles in this station tells a lot about Portugal's past, its wars, royalty and transportation history.

The Carmo Church and Carmelite Church. These are two churches seen as one architectural structure. But they are not really beside each other because they are actually separated by a hidden house. (You'll get to see where is it in my vlog)

 Portugal's famous for its blue and white tiles. azulejos azuis e brancos.

Here's Livraria Lello, a famous bookstore in Porto where Diagon Alley's Flourish and Blotts bookstore from Harry Potter was inspired. It's jam-packed but it was all worth it because it is indeed very pretty. Tickets were sold at a place just beside it, it costs 5 euros and when you buy a book, and present your ticket, you will get 5 euros off the price of your book.

This is the Fountain of Lions, J.K. Rowling's inspiration for the Gryffindor House Symbol.

The Clerigos Tower which is also the inspiration of the Astronomical Tower from Harry Potter.

We walked for a while and managed to pass by this cute cafe with a library in its interiors.

We went on to walk some more and decided to have dinner with a view of the Duoro River. Man, our faces look so tired. Lol
