"El Ateneo" Bookstore

"El Ateneo" is a bookstore with several locations in Buenos Aires. The most famous one is located at Av. Santa Fe, half a block away from Av. Callao.
This former Theatre-Cinema was called the "Grand Splendid" and still has the sign on its facade. Converted to a bookstore in 2000, it has kept its original decor as it was adapted into a bookstore.
Besides admiring its interior you might want to pick up a book on Buenos Aires as a souvenir.

The Guardian ranks it second nicest bookshop (as the brits say) in the world.
 I´m attaching the article cuz you might want to check out the others if you´re in the mentioned cities.
