1. Casa Del Libro

"It is a delight to visit Casa del Libro. You can find everything and anything. I usually visit the one in Gran Via so it can get busy but you can always ask for help. Since I am always in the move, sadly I allow myself to buy maximum two books 😥 Stop by and immerse in the world of literature. Buy a book of a local author. This should also be a part of your traveling experience."

"Wonderful Travel Library.It has most of the things one need to start roaming the world.From travel maps to photobooks, from dictionaries to travel guides.Particularly interesting the nature sections and the fact that for each continent there is also related literature, so one can not only plan a holiday, but also immerse oneself in the culture before even taking off.If I lived in Barcelona I’d spend here most of my salary."

5. Libreria Anglesa Come In

"A very big book store! They have all kinds and genres of books from fiction to non-fiction. We were looking for english books for my son. There were a lot of options compared to the other bookstores in Barcelona. We had a hard time deciding which one to buy because of all the options and because we went there one hour before they close. In the end, we bought 3 books. We recommend you going there earlier as you’ll need lots of time looking for books if you don’t have anything special in mind. Once you open a book you can’t resist looking for the others that they have 😂🤣. My son didn’t want to leave the bookstore! We will come back"

11. Perez Galdos Library

"A wonderful, quaint, and tiny second hand book shop with a distinctive left leaning bias. Wonderful books about the Spanish civil war, the rise and demise of fascism mixed with poetry and novels. We bought poems of the most Spanish author, Pablo Neruda. Yes, we own several books with his poems in several other languages but it feels different to buy his work in Spanish, in Madrid. Go and find your treasure."
