La Central del Raval

Based in a former chapel, this bookshop began by specialising in the Humanities. However, today La Central has become one of Barcelona’s benchmark spaces for readers, authors and publishers. You’ll find titles on anthropology, architecture and design, art and film, and photography, but also collections of poetry and artworks, among others. La Central has a notable selection of foreign-language novels in Barcelona, with a great variety of books in English, and not just bestsellers or classics. (They have a sister shop in the Eixample as well.)
