In our search for inspiration and new novels to devour, we come across La Central, a cosy space located in the Eixample district where its wide range of literature and an intoxicating aroma of coffee accompany us throughout our visit. A unique place, not at all neutral, that poeticizes the full experience of buying a book, taking it into the realm of the intangible.
Discover with us the most literary point of view of Barcelona, only 15 minutes walking from C211.
The coexistence of classic bookstores and digital sales is increasingly adverse for small establishments, which emphasize their faithful vocation in a panorama as unfavorable as the current one. The experience of visiting La Central extends beyond the pleasure of buying a book as a point of differentiation from the great giants of the industry. Its walls hide more than 85,000 total volumes with an important collection dedicated to contemporary thought. Among books, comics or magazines we are surprised to find articles that no lover of letters can resist: stationery, pens, intellectual toys or even mugs are only symbolic products that help build that concern so alive in each of its customers.
If we go down the stairs in search of other paralytic products, we discover a relaxed corner where you can enjoy a delicious coffee in the company of the novel you have just bought. Overlooking its own outdoor garden, the cafeteria and restaurant at La Central has an exquisite selection of products to make your visit as sweet as possible.
We recommend... one of their homemade cakes of the day accompanied by a delicious Italian Cappuccino.
The experience of La Central does not end here: in its web agenda you can consult the presentations, meetings and events that take place weekly to continue creating that culturally proactive climate that we talk about so much. We promise that it is worthwhile to let yourself be seduced by one of the plans offered by the bookstore any weekend. It's the perfect end to a full experience at La Central.
