Al Pie de la Letra Bookshop

The most extensive range in the city

There are many residents who confirm that this is the best library in Medellín. Al pie de la Letra has one of the most extensive catalogues in the city with titles in multiple sections which are aimed at all ages; its section on Colombian literature is particularly appealing where there's space for national geniuses such as Gabriel García Márquez and Álvaro Mutis, but also other authors of must reads like Laura Restrepo, Óscar Collazos and Germán Castro, as well as young promising authors in the country. Just as original is the section called 'En la sombra' (In the Shade), which recommends books that aren't so well known to the general public, but are worth being rescued from oblivion. One of these gems can become your new bedside book! Literature fans will find a place here where they can lose themselves for hours to fill their suitcases with pages and ink for the flight home.
