A famous landmark boasting wonderful architecture, this is Tangier’s best bookshop, with a decent English section. There are frequent book readings and events, including author appearances. It was once the haunt of Paul Bowles, Jean Genet, Samuel Becket and William Burroughs, and is an institution in Tangier.
