The round library at Universidad Carlos III. de Madrid.

My visit to this place was only brief, during a international conference. I was very impressed by the way physical space is organized in the library as it moves away from the traditional linear arrangement of book shelves. The library honours Maria Moliner, who was a Spanish librarian and lexicographer. She is best known for her Diccionario de uso del español, first published in 1966–1967.

It is a sheer coincidence that I am publishing this puzzle exactly (to the day!) 14 years after visiting this library. :) Thank you Deanna for publishing your Ateneo Buenos Aires bookstore and making me search for this ancient photo. :D

Hi Deanna, Prado is wonderful, too. And now, so many miles away again ... I stayed in Madrid for about 3 months back then and so I could take photos of the city in perfect weather. As for the studies, I spent the majority of time at the Biblioteca Nacional Española plus other (also specialized) university libraries and visited this one only during that congress. Some libraries are housed in very special buildings.

Dulsineja, thank you for the link and the look at the University Library in Madrid, it is really beautiful. An interesting building like a rotunda and no doubt it is a paradise for book lovers, I would stay there for weeks. And I would also like to visit Prado again ♥:))
