Book shopping in Trastevere, Rome with Carlos Sánchez Pereyra.
In the city of Puebla, México, there is an old and very important library: La Biblioteca Palafoxiana (something like ‘Palafoxian’ Library would be the literal translation, noting that in Spanish biblioteca is where the books are for public read but not for sale as in a librería).
It would be completely useless trying to describe the bunch of feelings you get while entering the Biblioteca Palafoxiana room. The air is filled with the smell of cedar and old books, huge lines of thousands books’ spines on each side of the room, a XVIII century altarpiece at the end of the room, under the arched ceilings, furniture from different eras still —in use—… all that history and knowledge stored on those three stories with about forty thousand volumes.
Is considered the first public library in the continent.
