The National Library was designed in 1956 by the architect, Porfírio Pardal Monteiro, who died in the following year. The work was completed by his nephew, António Pardal Monteiro.

It is a grandiose building with installations considered at the time to be a model example, both in terms of their capacity for storing books, and the various reading areas and support services - inventorying, cataloguing and workshops.

The National Library also has various offices for researchers and specialised staff, together with an auditorium and space for temporary exhibitions.
