What was a quirky exciting bookshop that I could have spent hours and a lot of money in was sadly owned by an incredibly rude man. He pushed passed us muttering rude comments about us being in the way, only to turn round and come...More

Went in today with my husband asked sister and with two of us being teachers- we often find and buy books wherever we go. Unfortunately the owner was incredibly rude and used offensive and fowl language towards us whilst we were looking at the books....More

It feels like 1 million books on three floors and losing the sense for reality. We went in there and came out three hours later with books worth of 300 €- but instead we only paid 175 € because the owner told us he wants...More

A truly fantastic gem in the heart of Palma. You could easily spend hours in there and still find crevices and shelves filled to the brim with books and other knick-knacks. The owner is a lovely character, thank you Rodney for Three men in a...More

My friend and I almost walked past this gem of a book shop, but luckily, we decided to go in. We bought two travel guides to Switzerland from 1904 and we had a lovely chat with the owner. The only negative part was that we...More
