A great bookshop in what used to be a theatre. You can drink a coffee in the café (which used to be the stage) whilst reading a book from one of the many shelves :D They have a good tourism section!
Situated where the Grand Splendid Theater used to be, this bookstore preserves the old theater's architecture and it was chosen as one of the most beautiful in the world. An excellent place to visit, pick your next book (with options for all ages), and even enjoy a coffee at the entrance.

“If you think of cemeteries as depressingly dark, underground affairs, Buenos Aires’ Recoleta Cemetery will turn that on its head. Considered the second most beautifuls cementery in the world (after the Pere Lechaise in Paris), the site was declared the city’s first official public burial place in 1822. Aside from being the resting place of the deceased, it is completely unlike a normal cemetery. The place is full of elaborately carved scroll-work and stately pillars that only reach up to your shoulder because all the structures are weirdly mini; it’s more magical than macabre. The burial site of Argentina’s most famous figures, including Evita herself.”
“Housed in a hulk of a building (originally a pumping station) on the busy traffic artery of Avenida del Libertador, the National Museum of Fine Arts is a vast treasury of Argentinian and Latin American art and painting from the 19th and 20th centuries, as well as one of the most important in Latin America. In the dozens of rooms you'll find heavyweight Argentinian artists. Although the emphasis here is on Latin American art, you'll also find important collections of European art and a smattering of American and Asian art. From Tuesday to Friday, 12:30pm to 8:30pm Saturday & Sunday, 9:30am to 8:30pm”
“Most popular coffee shop in Buenos Aires. Turists queue here to have a coffe and experience how every coffe place used to look like 100 years ago.”
“Take the guided tour of the Colon Theater, it is a beautiful theater. Hacer la visita guiada del Teatro Colon, es una belleza de teatro. ”
“An impressive modern building, the MALBA contains works by Argentine greats and other Latin American masters. It regularly hosts seminars and has a small cinema for cult and art-house retrospectives.”
