Though not a city traditionally associated with quirky independent bookstores, Seville is in fact home to some great spots for bookworms. If you prefer shopping for a good read among people who really love reading and books, these are the best places to head for in the Andalusian capital.
La Jeronima can’t quite decide whether it’s a bookshop or a bar, but it doesn’t matter. This is a space in which you can enjoy a quality, locally brewed beer from an impressive selection, as well as browsing through an imaginatively arrayed range of books. The opening hours are closer to those of a bar than a bookshop – most days it opens at 4pm and closes about midnight – and many locals come solely to hang out, meaning there’s always a decent atmosphere, although if you want to browse in peace and quiet it’s better to arrive early. Readings and bookclub meetings are also held here, and newbie book lovers are warmly welcomed into the fold, making this one of the best spots in Seville for those who love to have a good read and chat about it afterwards over a drink.
