The most «grandiose» bookstore in the world!

The bookshop «El Ateneo» is a real work of art, as it is located in one of the most important theaters of Buenos Aires in Argentina, in a building model architecture and decoration.  In 2000 renovated entirely without, of course, lose nothing of the old glamour, and turned into one of the 10 most beautiful bookstores in the world. The seats in the square were removed and their place was taken impressive libraries, and the curtain in the center still reminds the previous use.
