Summertime means holidays and traveling, city breaks and big trips that have been planned during the whole year. It’s the time for dreaming and explore the world. And one of the temples to get your inspiration is Altaïr , the travel bookshop from Barcelona with more tan 60.000 references to help you prepare your new adventure.
But Altaïr is more than a simple travel bookstore, it is a cultural venue, a meeting place for travellers with its own programme of activities. For us it is a must, and a so much loved place. We have been there many times, spending the afternoon looking at the maps and guides, dreaming with new destinations looking at the board and chatting with travellers from around the world.
If you are in Barcelona for holidays, Altaïr is also the place to be. You’ll find lots of books inspired in the city and a really good children’s section with many atlas and illustrated maps for the little ones. There is also a café where you can relax from the buzz of the big city. It is an absolute dream, isn’t it?
