Libreria

A destination in of itself, Libreria was designed by Spanish architects SelgasCano to recreate Jorge Luis Borges’s Library of Babel. The bookshop boasts a mirrored ceiling which creates a stunning – and dizzying – optical illusion, reflecting the wall to wall shelves stacked with amazing books. But visitors can’t Instagram their visit since phones are banned inside. Instead, they just have to live in the moment.
