  • Wonderful, enormous bookstore! Very chill to come in and read a book, listen to classical music. It’s very relaxing! They have more English language books than other bookstores and also, more people sitting in chairs on their phones or sleeping than other bookstores!!! (That last part is bad.) it’s an awesome place.
  • I really like this place and recommend the visit. It's quiet pleasant and you can stay here for several hours. Is located at av. Paulista
  • Take your family here and the kids will enjoy reading a book within a wooden dragon! They sell books, european board games, and coffee. There is something for everyone in this BEAUTIFUL bookstore!
  • One of the most beautiful libraries worldwide. It's worth the visit. In the heart of Paulista Avenue, Cultura's in walking distance to many other attractions.
  • Beautiful library and book store. If you're in the area you should walk in just to see how big and impressive it is.
