The atmosphere of this book store makes it the perfect place to get lost in all those stories. There are cushions spred throughout the store so customers can enjoy their chosen books right there.

Accompanied or alone, Cultura Bookstore is nice and cozy. There is a very charming coffee where you can eat , take a cup of tea and read that book which you never have time to finish. Its so far my favorite bookstore in Paulista Avenue.

LIvraria Cultura is a remarkable chain of bookstores, sellers are very well trained and will know whatever you ask them, even if you know very little about the book you want. The place has a lot of books and they will order it from another store if you cant find it in that specific one. Enjoy your visit!

Wow! What a fun bookstore design. Great space for designers and architects to explore. This is a great example for future educational spaces.

I live this place, you can spend hours reading and looking around. Is easy to spend hours inside this store. The Theater is very nice too. An oasis in the city.

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.
