Shakespeare and Company

Shakespeare and Co rue de la BucherieShakespeare and Company : a legendary bookstore



A gorgeous bookshop with a lot of history, facing the river Seine, right across from the Notre Dame Cathedral, in a 16th century building.

Out front, bookstands and a drinking fountain erected in the 19th century.

And since October 12th 2015, a café beside the bookshop (corner of rue de la Bûcherie and rue Saint Julien Le Pauvre). (An article about the Shakespeare and Company cafe coming up soon)
