When driving through the Atacama desert, one can expect to see many things, a bookstore isn’t usually one of them.

The Librería del Desierto is a small self-run bookstore and local publishing house located just over 4 kilometers from San Pedro. It features books centered around local stories and culture written in Spanish, French, and English.

Upon arrival, the owners often offer tea, water, or coffee to visitors. They also love talking about the shop and local customs, along with helping readers find the perfect book for a desert-style siesta.
