El Sótano

El Sótano

The original location of this bookstore opened in a basement in the 1960s—hence the name—but was destroyed in the 1985 earthquake, so this branch has been the headquarters ever since. Aside from books, you can stock up on DVDs and BluRays, CDs, plus all sorts of knickknacks and toys.
