Special place to know and relax. At this place, calm and comfortable, you can find books, videos, games, etc. There is a special space to read a book. If you have kids, there is a space for them as well.

Although it is huge, it is very cozy. There you can read and find mostly all edited books in Portuguese and quite a big selection in other languages. And if you want to go to the cinema it has 2 salas where they exhibit great films. There is a branch in one of the best shoppings centers in Sao Paulo,... More

Excellent ambience! Even if you are not looking to buy any books, do give this place a visit. You can find hundreds of people walking around, browsing, and even sitting while reading books/magazines/novels/sketching! There is also a cafe inside where you can have a light bite. Totally worth the visit if you are a 'bookworm' (in a good way)!

You can also ask for foreign books that they can import for you. I love this place even for just browsing... More

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.
