I've submitted a change of the address because the previous wasn't accurate. It's on a side street off the Carrera del Darro. There'a a sign but still I went down the wrong road (it's not where the White Nest Hostel is), it's the one before (if coming from Plaza Nueva) - Calle Gloria.
The attraction here is the biscuits (or cookies or sweets or whatever you want to call them) handmade by the Cistercian nuns housed in the monastery. They tasted divine (see my photo). I bought half a kilo - I should have bought more.
You see, you don't see what you're going to buy. You walk into an empty courtyard. There's a list of prices and instructions. You don't get to see the goods. You ring a bell, someone answers, you state what you want, a few minutes later, a small window slides open, you hand over the €€, the nun hands you a box.
You can see their goods on the website. I bought a "medio kilo de surtido de dulces" - a mix of "sweets". Practise saying that in Spanish. Prices was 6€ for 500g, 12€ for 1kg.
Feel free to ask me any questions.
