The bookstore is flanked by shops and fronts the Praça de Lisboa, near to the Porto University Faculty of Sciences building, the Church and Torre de los Clerigos.

The rectangular plan covers two-stories, representing a simple mass, covered in tiled roof. Its principal facade is oriented to the south, towards the Ruas das Carmelitas and related to the Praça de Lisboa. The building's exterior has a mixed architectural suggesting Neo-Gothic, and Art Nouveau elements, and in the interior, implied Art Deco elements.

On the first floor, it includes bated arch, divided into three vains, with the central arch providing entrance into the building and decorative lateral windows, each surmounted by flag adapted to the archway. Above this arch are three elongated rectangular windows flanked by two painted figures representing "Art" and "Science" (work of Professor Jose Bielman).

Finishing the facade are squared plaits surmounted by three decorated pinnacles, with two pilasters on either side, topped by pinnacles of equal design. Decorative elements complete the facade with alternating geometric shapes that circuit and the firm's name LELLO & BROTHER over the bow, all painted in vivid colours that highlight the white paint on the facade.

The ample interior space is marked by a forked staircase connecting to a gallery on the first floor with detailed wood balusters.

Over this staircase is a large 8 by 3.5 metres (26 ft × 11 ft) stained glass window, with the central motto Decus in Labore and monogram of the owners.

The ceiling and interiors are treated exhaustively with painted plaster, designed to resemble sculpted wood surfaces and decorative elements.

The building still retains the rails and wooden cart once used to move books around the store between the shelves

Pretty close to the townhall we found a terrace where we had a wonderfull view over Porto!
I believe that this is the viewpoint "Mirador", but I'm not a 100% certain.
