By far the most comprehensive bookshop in Madrid, the three-story Casa del Libro is conveniently positioned right in the center of the Gran Vía. The basement offers a great selection of dictionaries and grammar books, while a ground floor alcove has an up-to-date selection of English-language literature (alongside current French, German, Italian, and Portuguese tomes). The first floor houses a well-stocked international travel section with plenty of books on Madrid. Open Monday to Saturday from 9:30am to 9:30pm and Sunday from 11am to 9pm.
