The bookstor was started in 1947 and in 1969 moved to the present location in the Conjunto Nacional. In 2007 the bookstore took over the space of the movie theater nexdoor and became the largest bookstore in Brazil. The curious layout of the store is from the movie theater. The bookstore is now the flaship of 19 stores in Brazilian... More

An excellent bookstore, also for books in English - there's a wide variety, and in many different categories. Worth a visit, even if not planning on buying anything. One of the main bookstores of São Paulo.

Given that I've never been to all the bookstores in South America, much less all the ones in Sao Paulo, I'm just going to go ahead and declare this the best in South America. Great little English section for the gringos. There's a dragon hanging from the ceiling. On Tuesdays there's free jazz in the theater. That's right- the bookstore... More

Brilliant store, best selection of books in the country. All the specialities, though can be v pricey. Good for hard to find books on Brazil. Nice cafe and atmosphere. Great for wet days in Sao Paulo

Other branches from the same book store can be found in the same building complex. Those book stores are specific for art and geek books. Another one only sells books... 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.
