Most Photogenic Libraries in the World

Beatrice Lessi

I have a Library Bucket List in my phone, and I add a name or location every time I bump into a picture of a library that leaves me speechless.

I made it to some of these places and was never disappointed: the combination of good looks and almost sacred atmosphere make libraries one of my favourite places to visit, especially when traveling.

I also have some very special memories of being pregnant and studying in the famous New York library, spending my husband’s 5oth birthday in Dublin, at Trinity College, spending a weekend alone in Lisbon, visiting the LX Factory and its bubbly bookstore.

Here is a gallery with my favourite libraries – they might inspire you for an upcoming trip, or simply to read a book!
