You won't believe this 100-year-old massive theater is now a popular bookstore

Whether you are fond of books or not you need to see this amazing building!

Grand Splendid Theater was built almost 100 years ago, back in 1919. It was founded in honor of the end of the First World War. Later the theater was turned into a cinema, and in 2000 - was converted into a unique bookstore called El Ateneo Grand Splendid.

So many beautiful buildings are being torn down to build "modern" monstrosities. It's nice to see someone preserve one for mankind.

There's nothing like the warmth the surrounds you when enter buildings that were built in those early years and that were properly maintained. Maybe because I'm almost as old as that building that I have that fondness

Ohhh! Just the place for me. Hope they serve hot tea. It is breath-taking. My tree is the willow. I chose it for its artistic appearance.
