Named as the second most beautiful bookstore in the world, El Aeteno Grand Splendid is one of the best known bookshop in Buenos Aires!
This bookstore was originally a theatre with a seating capacity of 1050 and staged a variety of performances including some well known tango artists.
Chairs are provided throughout the building, including the still-intact theatre boxes, where customers can dip into books before purchase, and there is a café on the back of what was once the stage.
The ceiling, the ornate carvings, the crimson stage curtains, the auditorium lighting and many architectural details remain! A must visit for all book and architecture lovers.
