Not only is the Grand Splendid bookstore in Argentina the most beautiful bookstore in the world, it also comes with a one hundred year old history that just adds to its charm.
The building was opened in 1912 as a theatre, but the theatre seating was removed and the theatre converted into a bookstore in 2000. The stage itself is a coffee shop…where I wouldn’t mind at all sitting and watching the world go by.
The Grand Splendid is one of the busiest and most successful bookstores in the world. It’s not hard to imagine why. Even I, who am now almost allergic to reading print editions, would buy at least one book from here, just to say I did.
