Librería Abya Yala



All book worms listen up: Libreria Abya Yala wants you to walk through its doors and check out the amazing variety of books on offer.

This book shop is dedicated to the history of Ecuador and Latin America in general, and tells the region's beguiling story through numerous documents, books and literature classics from famous authors native to this part of the world.

And the fun doesn't stop there. This cultural centre also boasts an Ecuadorian sound archive, which along with documents, videos and audio tapes unravels the fascinating history of music in Ecuador. As if you could ask for more, there is also a deluge of anthropological, archaeological and enthohistorical books on display.

This is by a long stretch the most comprehensive book store of its type in the whole country of Ecuador, and Abya Yala is not only a shop, it is also a publishing house considered to be one of the biggest producers of social studies texts in South America. The publishing catalogue includes a whopping 1,800 books, many championing indigenous writers.
