Close to the San Esteban Convent, this is a small treasure that deserves more visitors. Very relaxing visit.

We went only to purchase some bakery items BUT we the followed up with a self pace tour of the convent. Nicely maintained and clean, lots off attention to details and historical artifacts

We nearly missed it, they were just closing. A nun let us in and ushered us in to the bake shop. The cookies are very good and the courtyard was lovely. But, we did not get to see the big courtyard because they closed.
