We had been looking forward to buying sweets at one of the convents in Granada, we intended to take some back as Christmas presents. We found the place quite easily as it is well sign posted. Sweets were 10 euro a kilo which we thought was expensive, then we found out that they are not in fact sweets but biscuits... More

We found this convent while strolling around the area and followed the signs to see what kind of sweet shop it would be. It was like walking into a very small Sound of Music set or mini theme park and the cakes are delicious.

We had the most delightful experience here. We noticed a sign saying "venta dulces" and went up the street and to the right. Found a "torno"- a lazy susan- with a list of the sweets baked by the nuns, with prices. The lazy susan is usually there so you don't see the nun, but she waved at us cheerily from... More

Ring the bell and wait for a very kind nun to welcome you. Tasty cookies, Roscos, sablé,.... we bought an assortment and really like the sablés. Nevadida a bit less. Worth trying!!

We had read that one could buy good cookies from the nuns of this monastery. You pass a door, go to a window. A nun, who you never see, passes you cookies in a box. I think they cost 3 or 5€. They are very good.

We had heard about the nuns who made cookies, so we checked it out. We chose "nevaras" (with powdered sugar like wedding cookies). We placed the order on an intercom. There's a turnstile on which we expected the cookies to be placed, but the nun peeked out from the side and exchanged a box for the money.

Do cant find more authentic place in Granada. I was looking forward to go and buy cookies at this place. It is a little bit tricky to find but its worth the search. The cookies are soooo good and I just love to support local dealers and you can feel it's made with a blessing from above.

We looked at these wonderful reviews and also bought 500g of the mixed sweets, but I have to say we expected the cookies to taste a little bit better..they didn't really taste home-made, just something you could buy from any supermarket. Would not buy again, only because we don't find them that delicious but it was an interesting experience anyway.
