Travelgram from El Aeteno Grand Splendid

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.
