The Lisbon Book Fair is one of the oldest cultural festivals held in the capital of Portugal. It was inaugurated in the 1930s, and its traditional location is the Eduardo VII Park (Parque Eduardo VII), the largest park of Lisbon, which is located in the vicinity of the monumental Praca do Marques de Pombal.
Exhibitors aside, the public can delight in reading through and buying old and rare volumes, as well as enjoying the advantages of the generous discounts of the prices occasioned by the fair. Most of the books (either old or new titles and authors) are in Portuguese, but there are, however, plenty of stalls showcasing publications in English, which draw the interested of the English speaking people who don't only want to sample the charm of the event, but also to take some rarities back home from their stay in Lisbon.
