Atlantis Books is a small, colorful store located in central Oia. It was established in 2004 when two friends spending their vacation in Santorini two years prior discovered there was no bookshop on the island. Since then, it has become a meeting point for fans of literature and art and a tourist attraction in itself. It got its name from the myth of the lost Atlantis, which according to some legends, was actually situated on the island.
The bookstore offers editions in Greek, English, French, Spanish, German, Italian and Chinese. It ranges from fiction to philosophy to poetry, with many other genres in between, and sells both new and second-hand books. It is the best place for anyone searching for collectors’ and first editions, antique books and rare finds, such as copies illustrated by famous artists. It houses a great selection of books where every kind of reader can find a perfect match!
The bookstore often hosts writers and artists and organizes various events, mainly on the terrace, where a breathtaking view is guaranteed. Gatherings, film screenings and workshops take place in the shop, making it the ideal destination for bibliophiles and lovers of arts and crafts.
