Nice Muffins
Sep 2019 • Couples
We called in hear after watching it on a YouTube video. A nice thing to do whilst in the area.
Make sure you go to the right door, we stupidly banged on the wrong door for a while.

No sweets available
Aug 2019 • Friends
Visited today after watching Alexis Pollitti travel show rang the bell and a wee voice answered . We asked for the candied egg yolk but disappointed that there were none available . Bought muffins and got a bag full . However opposite there is a beautiful church so worth our visit .

Nice sweets.
May 2018 • Couples
Great experience, buying sweets through the rotating hatch. The sweets are all very sweet. If you don’t like very sweet things, the muffins/magdalenas are probably your best bet (5 euros for a bag). However they’re most famous for the yemas (11 euros for half a kilo) and the very syrupy pestiños (7 euros). It’s open from 9am - 1pm, and from 4.30pm - 7pm. Not sure whether it’s open every day though. I imagine not Sundays, given it’s a convent. Enjoy!

A life of prayer
Apr 2018 • Solo
Arrived in the evening when the church was open, so went in, to be greeted to the sound of song. The nuns, behind the grill were singing the evening Office, part of the prayer of the church. Noticed something white on the floor, inside the far doorway, which some of the nuns, arriving late for the prayer.....waved their arms at. I thought this was some kind of holy ritual, until one nun waved her arm more vigorously and up jumped a white dog, who then ran around and barked before running over to an elderly nun who sat to the side, who stroked it before it ran off again! Meanwhile the nuns continued to sing!

Quirky place of interest
Jan 2018 • Solo
If you are in the area, it's worth visiting this unobtrusive convent courtyard to experience purchasing either the sweets or muffins the nuns have been making for years to generate extra income. The transaction takes place via a turnstile, so there is no face to face communication. Personally, the sweets are too sugary and glutinous for me (be warned as they aren't that cheap), so if I were to visit again I'd try one of the alternatives like the muffins.

Such a unique life
Aug 2017 • Family
We visited from Ireland this year as we had been reading about it before we went. On entering the courtyard we saw a wooden structure in the wall with the images of what seemed like a miraculous medal. I pressed the buzzer and after a few minutes the nun replied after seeming to open a shutter behind the wooden turn table. As the images of the sweets displayed did not look appetizing I asked if she sold rosaries. She sent out a selection on the turn table. They were only three euro. Her voice sounded young. They live such holy lives. Truly amazing people. Saint's for sure!!! You'll have a memorable experience. Don't forget they sell cookies etc also. I didn't know this at the time. They are supposed to be excellent quality!

Hand made sweets from a convent
Sep 2016 • Couples
Yup, you read the title correctly...
In the backstreets of Seville there is a little convent. You knock on the door and enter into a shady courtyard, where there is a little turnstile set at face height into the wall. It is completely opaque – you can’t see who is on the other side – but you can place an order. You put your money on the turnstile, and it turns, and from the other side appears a box full of sweets. These sweets have been made and sold by the nuns of this convent for all of living memory.
