Originally a well-established theatre, El Ateneo Bookstore was founded in 1919 and provided a variety of entertainment services for Buenos Aires, including opera and film shows. In the 1970s, it was gradually abandoned due to years of disrepair. Later, the abandoned theater was turned into a bookstore. The original ground floor of the theater sells children's books and toys, the second floor sells other books, and the third floor sells records and DVDs. The bookstore also retains some seats on the fourth floor, where any reader can read and overlook the entire book store.
The Athenian Bookstore is the second largest bookstore in the world and one of the red card punching spots in the Buenos Aires network. Its predecessor was an old theatre that was converted into a current bookstore. The bookstore's door is very ordinary, and it is not as grandiose as it is, so that it cannot be linked to the adjectives of "the world's second" and "the first of South America." When I walked into the bookstore, I found out that there was no hole in the sky. It can also be seen that the theater looks like a box, which becomes a reading room, the stage becomes a coffee shop, and the rows of bookshelves are neatly placed in the audience. Looking up at the magnificent murals on the dome, the deep European taste made me feel that I was in a church in Italy, and I had to sigh that reading here is a kind of happiness.
The Athenian bookstore in Argentina was chosen as the second most beautiful bookstore in the world.

Beautiful! This palace-style building turned out to be the most beautiful bookstore in South America~
Traveling to Argentina, how can you miss the Athenian bookstore! The Athenian Bookstore is the second largest bookstore in the world. The bookstore's predecessor, the Bright Theater, was completed in 1919 and was once the landmark building of the Argentine capital of Buenos Aires. The
dome mural is drawn by the Italian painter Sanareno Orandi and the theme is peace. The original box, sculpture, and the crimson curtain on the stage are all well preserved, but the stage becomes a place for the reader to rest. You can go up to eat snacks or sit down and read. The box has become a "mini" reading room.
If all the bookstores are so beautiful, then I must be a good boy who loves to read [Laughing R] and the price of the cafe here is very close to the people. The price of a cup of iced coffee is less than 20RMB. The little fairies who love to take pictures Don't miss it here~
tips: Argentina is now open for e-signing. Those who hold a US visa can apply online directly. It is especially convenient!
Although a series of unpleasant things happened in Argentina these two days, and Argentina's prices are quite high, I really like Argentina! The old-fashioned antique shop on the street building bus, Buenos Aires is so charming and poisonous!
I was convinced that I had been in the "the second beautiful bookstore in the world"--the Athenian bookstore for an afternoon and transformed the theater into a bookstore cafe.
