El Virrey Bookstore One of the best ways (a challenge, but worth it) to improve your Spanish is to hit the books. Librería el Virrey is one of the city’s very best literary stores, ample and packed with Spanish-language fiction, history, art history, and essays, etc., alongside a winning selection of English-language titles. A used and rare bookstore when founded in the 1970s by late politician and chess player Eduardo Sanseviero, the shop's inventory now focuses on new editions and is catnip for intellectuals, artists and bohemian types. The wide-ranging topics on the shelves and harmonious atmosphere invite leisurely discovery.
