La Central (Eixample)

Despite its beginnings in 1996 as a bookshop specializing in the Humanities, La Central has become one of the benchmark spaces for readers, authors and publishers. You can find titles on anthropology, architecture and design, art and film, and photography, but also collections of poetry and artworks, among others. La Central has one of the best selections of foreign-language novels in Barcelona, with a great variety of books in English, and not just bestsellers or classics. It's also a great spot to pin down hard-to-find editions you've been searching for to add to your shelf, and there's a lovely café on the first floor. (They have a sister shop in the Raval as well.)
