  • Library open to the public in the heart of Barcelona. It is interesting to take the guided tour where they explain their origin and history. It contains an extensive number of books of all subjects and an important collection of Freemasonry books. Also on some visits you can see the collection of Sherlock Holmes objects located in the building.

  • It is a public library near the Arc de Triomphe in Barcelona, founded by Rossend Arus, so it's called the Ars Library. The lamp at the entrance has a taste and is very good. If you submit your ID (or passport if you are Japanese) at the entrance and tell them that you want to visit, you can enter. The library, which is full of books on sociology, is a masterpiece. It's quite small, and it's more of a laboratory than a library. I don't understand the language at all, but it was a library where you can enjoy the atmosphere enough.

  • Interesting visit to see a public library dating from early 1900 thanks to a philothrantic act by a local businessman who donated his house for community benefit. The librarian said I said I could take photos for my own private use only. I tried to explain it was for Google Maps but she said they don't have anything to do with them ! So here's my photos as she'll never find out !! Nice, peaceful place albeit small but it has bags of history & character.
  • Gorgeous Sherlockian library near the Arc de Triomf
