Written by Paula

When the school season arrives, bookstores get busier than ever. A good way to avoid having to stand in line for your books is to go to bookstores that are located further from the center.

ShBarcelona went for a walk in one of the most peaceful neighborhoods in the city and has selected the best bookstores for you to visit.


bookstore barcelonaEtcètera is one of the oldest bookstores in Barcelona. In business for almost 40 years, Etcètera has become more than a bookstore, presenting itself as a meeting point between readers and students. The store staff is composed of avid readers, who will gladly make recommendations.

Etcètera is located at Carrer de Llull, 203.


Nollegiu is a special bookstore that is constantly organizing book launching events with writers and poets, like Augustín Fernándes Mall, who recited poems from his book “Ya Nadie se Llamará como yo”.

To discover the next events that will take place at Nollegiu, pay a visit to their official website. Take the opportunity to explore their virtual catalog. If you can’t find the book you are looking for, the store can order it for you.
