El Ateneo

El Ateneo, in Buenos Aires.  One of the ‘most interesting bookstores in the world,’ according to Session Magazine.  The bookstore is situated in an old theater, the Teatro Gran Splendid in May 1919. The bookshop became a cinema in the late 1920s and was converted, again, in 2000 for the current bookstore.
