Second hand books for English speakers
Opened in 2004 to address the dearth of English-language literature in Barcelona, Hibernian Books has gone on to cement a cult status amongst the city’s expat community (or at least it’s more high brow members!).
Located in the suitably Bohemian barrio of Gracia, Hibernian boasts over 40,000 English-language titles, most of them second-hand, lending the store the kind of romantic charm that is the essence of any good book shop.
Classic novels, modern literature, kids’ stories and plenty of non-fiction and learning materials make Hibernian an invaluable resource for Anglophiles and of course there are plenty of books about Barcelona itself, for those who want to get under the literary skin of the city.
