Network of Bookshops

Granada’s bookshops

Portada del libro guía "Granada. Red de librerías"

We have devised this project with several objectives: to bring to the fore the quality, quantity, diversity and richness of Granada’s bookshops; to realise their potential for visibility and promotion; to build bridges between bookshops a nd the reading public; to generate self-esteem and added value; to develop a link between the specific ambit of bookshops and the general sphere of cultural and tourism development in Granada; and to bring bookshops together under a unified concept, idea or image of quality to add to the list of the city’s cultural attractions.

The latest update of the network took place on November 11, 2021, in celebration of Bookstore Day.
