Spending time exploring what Barcelona has to offer is a great idea. However, if you are intending to spend several days in the city and what time to relax and unwind why not head to the beach with a good book. Luckily for you, you don’t need to bring one with you, as there are plenty of bookstores around the city where you can go and get the book of your choice.
Certainly, for lovers of literature, one of the best known and bookstores can be found in the city’s Raval district. Located in the heart of the city the store we are talking about here is Seller Central, which is situated on Mallorca Street. Not only has it become a favourite with buyers, but also with all lovers of literature as numerous talks and symposiums are held here throughout the year.
The next place we recommend to you is Laie Llibreria Café found on the Pau Claris. This is a bookstore like none other in the city as it not only houses a store but also a café and restaurant. So if you really want to get out of the here this is the perfect place to spend a few idle hours. In fact, as it has over 20,000 titles on sale, we suggest you may want to spend a whole day exploring what this store has to offer whilst staying in the city. In fact, once you enter through its doors you may find it hard to leave. Something not to be missed is the live jazz along with the very interesting talks that take place.
Finally, if you are looking for a guidebook to help you explore the real Barcelona then make sure you head to Altair (situated on Les Corts). This bookstore specializes in supplying travel guides and has over 50,000 titles on sale. But not only will you find a great selection of travel guides available here, but also a wide selection of other books covering a range of other subjects as well.
