There's a cafe, sometimes they have special guests or book signings, they have another 2 (I think) smaller bookstores next to the main one with specific themes, a geek and an art one, form what I remember. There's small a... More

It's a great library. You can find collections of books from different writers in several languages and even music. Definitely, if you love read, you should visit it.

If you are addicted to books, this is the right place for you! This bookstore has a wonderful and lovely design... you can be there for hours, reading book, enjoying the experience. It's just great. Besides that, it's located in the Paulista Ave, one of the most famous attractions of Sao Paulo.

Livraria Cultura is a book lovers paradise. The biggest problem for me is I do not read Portuguese. Still a wonder experience to visit and look at the store and books. There is three sections to the store. A must stop if on Paulistra Avenue.

Shows you how editing and libraries in Europe have lost because of the e-age taking pace. The three floors of this book store are full, there is an ability to sit, a caffee, toilets, the personel is friendly, knowledgable and helpful even if - like in the case of my visit - the shop was overloaded.

worth to visit and stay for a while. I just travel to have a look, even I bought nothing (because I can not read Portuguese), I like the environment very much. Some people were communicating together and have some champion, coffee or snack. People here all love book.

Staying in Jardins

Neighborhood Profile
Jardins
Located just below important Paulista Avenue, Jardins is the junction of four smaller neighborhoods: Jardim Paulista, Jardim América, Jardim Europa and Jardim Paulistano. It is an upper-class area, offering a variety of things to do, including shopping, museums and parks. The neighborhood is well known for “Oscar Freire”– the most luxurious street in the city, packed with high-end boutiques. In Jardins you will also find a trendy museum, São Paulo Museum of Image and Sound (MIS), which people often line up for hours to visit. If green space is what you're after, take time to relax at Trianon Park, a refuge in the heart of Paulista Avenue.
