Cultura Bookstore

Cultura Bookstore has several branches in São Paulo and in other Brazilian cities, but the store of Avenida Paulista is the most popular. Opened in 2007, it is the largest bookstore in the country, with 4300 sq meters and three floors. In the children’s area, children find a stimulating reading space. There is also an auditorium and a pleasant café with free Wi-Fi.

The store catalog is wide and quite varied: over 7 million titles of books, 560.000 CDs, DVDs, eBooks, audiobooks, games and magazines. Updated with the innovations in the sector, Cultura Bookstore has recently launched its own eReader (digital reading device).

The store is situated inside Conjunto Nacional building, considered the first shopping mall in Latin America. The shopping complex was built in 1958, when Paulista Avenue still had many mansions of the elite of coffee producers (known as “barões do café”). Downstairs there are other establishments belonging to the same group: four bookstores and Cine Livraria Cultura.
