Great store, candy created right in front of you

A terrific old-style candy shop with delicious candy that's handmade right in front of you. Smells great, could hardly drag myself out of there.

It's great to see someone still making candy the old fashioned way! Not obvious from the main roads, there's a little place that still does everything by hand, one batch at a time. I stopped in before dinner and they were making butterscotch and offered me a taste while it was still being folded - you haven't lived until you... More

This shop is filled with candy in every flavor imaginable.The candies are SO beautifully made. I tried the banana, the butter scotch and the mocha candy,all of which were DELICIOUS. Definitely check it out, and try as many flavors as you can.

From myself and my children I cannot recommend this shop enough. The smell which embraces you as you walk in, the artistry of those making the sweets and the final products you can take with you. This is an absolute must and will be remembered for many months to come.

Went here after a recommendation from the Segway Glides tour guide, Edger. He definitely deserves free candy :) The shop smells so good and the candy tasted delicious. The owner was handing out samples and spoke excellent English. We got a bag of strawberry candy for us and a load of bags for family at home. Perfect.

We went here after the segway glides guide told us about it. The men were making sweets as we were in the shop . Having tried some earlier we knew they were tasty so soon stocked up! A little pricey compared to uk standards but great tasting and worth it for a treat.

always fun to see candy being made! they will make custom orders, but you need to leave enough time for them to be made...otherwise great options to buy in the shop. brought home goodies for the house sitter and she was happy! the shop workers were nice to my kids.

Wow. The smell is intoxicating and samples incredible. The staff is helpful, congenial, and fluent in English. We bought lots of gifts for family and friends as well as some for ourselves! The difficult choice was parting with the gifts.

This store was the last stop of our Runnerbean tour for kids. The kids (4 & 7) had never seen candy being made before and they watched with big eyes. We bought a jar and a couple of small bags as treats for the kids and friends when we returned home. They taste great and remind us of our vacation.... More

Staying in Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
