About The Guide

Hello! We are Sonja and Ivan. And this is our Bookstore Guide - an amateur guide to book shopping throughout Europe. We hope this Guide will help you find the book(stores) you are looking for.

After a day of visiting various (known and not-so-known) sights of Barcelona, we embarked on yet another bookstore hunt in order to explore what Catalunya's capital has to offer. As always, we were looking forward to any additional entry to our Guide and this was, of course, the case with BCN Books as well.

Unfortunately, the prime location of BCN Books is not as favorable as, perhaps, the location of other Barcelonian bookstores in Bookstore Guide (BCN Books is located on the corner of Roger de Lluria and Provenca) but then again it is some half an hour walk away from the main tourist zone i.e. the city center. As a matter of fact, none of the three BCN Books locations are in the very pedestrian zone of the city. However, having walked the distance to the bookstore, we were not left disappointed with what it had to offer.

Spreading on two floors, it is also characterized by an odd, still not at all sterile tidiness and cleanliness. BCN Books sells solely new editions. The fiction and travel sections can be found on the ground floor, while the spiral staircase leads your way up to the heaven of teaching and learning materials for all ages and all levels.

BCN Books has been around for quite some time and it primarily offers various language learning and teaching materials (grammars, dictionaries, course books) - thus it has established itself as one of the prime locations for foreign language books. It also stocks contemporary fiction and classics, as well as a decent selection of travel guides and books on Barcelona.
