You can visit a few shop in the "barrio gothico" AROUND THE CATHEDRAL but the best is certainly to go on Sunday morning to the "mercado San Antonio", it is a well-know market of books.
I hope this will help you.

In Spanish or English? Oct 29, 2003

Hi there,
You can find second hand Catalan/Spanish bookshops all over the city, but there is a great concentration of them in the C/ Muntaner crosses Gran Via area.

Indeed the road running paralel to Gran Via and just up from Muntaner - ("Consell de Cent" or "Diputacio"?) becomes one huge book market every so often.... like the Bookstalls on the banks of the Seine... (anyone know with what frequency? - You can tell I don't live in the city, can't you?)

As for English Second Hand books, I'd recommend a shop up in Gracia (c/ Sant Salvador around about 133 - if memory serves). That has probably the best selection of 2nd Hand English books in the city. It used to be called Simons & Co - but it has changed its name and I forget to what - some help I am, eh?).

If it is books in Spanish and/or Catalan you are after, then the city is a great place to browse and the choice is enormous. Enjoy it!

Have you just moved here? Or are you passing thru soon?

Cheers,

Berni

also on Verdi Oct 30, 2003

I think the English bookshoop on Salvador has closed down, I was hoping it would reopen in another spot...we´ll see
For photos, art and architecture and some literature there is a decent 2nd hand bookshop on Calle Verdi on Gracia, a block down from the cinema, on your left as you approach Pl de la Revolucio.
