A Book Lover’s Treasure Trove


El Bazar del Libro in Palma de Mallorca is a book lover’s treasure trove. It is one of Palma’s institutions and a bit of a legend really.

No matter what turns you on in literature, poetry or history, in maps, guide books, magazines, old calendars or prints, this antiquarian book shop next door to the Esglèsia de Santa Eulàlia, to the back of the Ajuntament de Palma, is bound to have what you are looking for, or something that comes very close to it.

The drawback is the infinite quantity of books and other printed items. It is really difficult to browse through all the stacks of goods that have accumulated over the last 40 or 50 years. There are only two ways out: you either know exactly what you want and ask the shop keeper for it. He will find it in an instant if he has what you are looking for. Or you just trust your luck and dip in here or there. You may find something that you haven’t looked for but which delights you nevertheless. Good luck.

But hurry. I’d be surprised if the business would be there for very much longer. After all, the shop is a bit of an anachronism, and with La Crisis, who knows?


The photos were taken in Palma de Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: July 7th, 2009. The time was 11:42:22 and 11:42:12, respectively.

  1. Hi,

    I’m searching for a german Travaler Magazine for a Image of the Bezar del Libro, would it be possible that we get your photo for our Mallorca Issue? Thank you very much!

    Best Regards
