Since its establishment in 1923, La Casa del Libro has worked to promote the editorial world, collecting the largest range of references in all of Spain where it has authentic temples that are completely filled with items from the world of books.
In Madrid there are various establishments belonging to this literary giant, owned by Espasa Calpe of Grupo Planeta. Although it also has an online presence that offers the possibility of internet shopping, without a doubt, the flagship of the chain is the large store in Gran Vía, with four floors that are classified by genre and specialized staff that are always available to solve any doubts the clients may have.
It's philosophy combines generalist concepts, given the universality of its funds; specialized, by the thousands of bibliography references it contains; traditional, by worrying about becoming a meeting point for authors, readers and booksellers; and modern, by being a pioneer in the adoption of new technology adapted to the editorial sector.
All of this is combined with a complete array of services and facilities, such as documentation, import and export, subscriptions to national and foreign magazines, customer cards, national and international bibliography information, access to the main national and foreign data bases and the commitment to bringing a book to the store as quickly as possible if it is not available immediately.
