El Ateneo Grand Splendid is the most beautiful library I have ever been to. From the moment you walk in, the beauty and elegance of its interior takes your breath away. The building was built in 1903 to serve as a theater and in 2000 was restored and turned into a bookstore.

Visiting the Ateneo is a wonderful way to spend your afternoon, either by reading or going to the café located on the back of the building, where the stage once was.
