Give a little bit of time to read about the history of the convent, built in the 19th but founded on 17th century. Mix of neo classical style and traditional local baroque. Must see.

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 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...More
