“If you like books it is a must see place”
Reviewed September 24, 2011

There are several stores of this one in town. The most traditional is the one in Conjunto Nacional, in Paulista Avenue. It´s huge and crowded in weekends. I go mostly in Shopping Villa Lobos unity. In these 2 places Livraria Cultura has an auditorium where pocket shows and lectures take place.
If you like books, it is a must see place.

“Best bookshop in Brazil”
Reviewed November 3, 2010

It has a large english Books section, and a great (though almost always packed) coffee place. Having spent 6 months in Sao Paolo, I spent a lot of time there stocking up my library.
