The San Ginés bookshop is considered one of the “oldest bookstores in Spain”, and it is true that this endearing corner on calle Arenal is filled with history.
They specialize in antique and second-hand books, ranging from narrative and technical handbooks for medicine, art of philosophy. On their tables on the street one can find unique and special copies coexisting with city guides or books about politics, which can only be found at the typically Madrilenian Pasaje de San Ginés. Thanks to all of this, along with their affordable prices for bargain books, this literary sanctuary is a paradise for collectors and onlookers since it opened its doors back in the 19th century.
