Despite being named a UNESCO City of Literature in 2014 and being the birthplace of renowned poet Federico García Lorca, Granada is not really known for any celebrated or famous bookshops. However, if you do find yourself in the city looking for reading materials for research or pleasure, you will find a handful of good places.
Most of the bookshops in this list stock books only in Spanish, with the exception of the Alhambra bookshop, but if you’re looking for something else in English, then the city’s specialist language bookshop — Metro International Bookshop — is your best bet. Located next to the University’s department of Translation and Interpretation, it stocks many dictionaries and books on grammar, as well as guidebooks, travel books, and literary fiction.
