These Nuns Bake a Mean Dessert!
Nov 2018 • Friends
The marzipan, yemas, and other treats here are delicious. This is a must stop in Toledo. I got a nice little box of mixed sweets then promptly ate them all because they were so good. I should have bought more but then I probably would have ate them as well. Best dessert in Spain!

If you made your way to this place in magical Toledo, go in and get as many sweets as you can afford. Their mazapán is to die for and the turrón de yema bars sell out fast. I also tried the chocolate covered treats...yummy.

The best marzipan and yemas in Toledo
Aug 2017 • Couples
Having bought marzipan and yemas from a few places in Toledo I still reckon these nuns do the best especially the yemas which are rich, light and fluffy. Yemas (pronounced Jemas) is basically marzipan enriched with egg yolk. They are also a little cheaper here. It is a closed convent so you cannot ordinarily visit the convent itself - only the shop is open.

Yummy treats!
Jun 2017 • Couples
We made a point of visiting convents while touring Spain to try their sweets. The nuns do the baking and the selling. Here the nuns are not cloistered so you can see what you can order and have a conversation. The treats were yummy - and it was just a quick stop!

Very Nice Pastries
Nov 2016 • Couples
Our goal was to find a few convents to enjoy a pastry during our travels. This is the first we have found. The pastries were fresh and very good. The young lady serving us was so pleasant and gave us pointers on what we might be looking for.Don't miss this if you are in the area.
*One thing would have made it more special-the old school way of placing coins on a rotating window and it being sent out on that window. Having everything in a shop kind of takes away from the experience we were looking for.

FReshly made marzipan and other delicacies. The nuns also embroider.
Mar 2017 • Couples
This is a closed order so do not expect a tour or indeed to see any of the nuns. The only reason you have to come here is to buy their fabulous handmade produce. It is artisan made so more expensive than the mass produced stuff but quite a lot cheaper than the goods from say Santo Tome which are rather more beautifully presented. I can recommend the Yemas which are marzipan balls enriched with egg yolk. They are amazing - incredibly light and fluffy to eat. They are definitely better then any other shop!! You can also buy knitted goods and embroidery here plus cookies and other food products.

Nice Marzipan
Jan 2017 • Friends
Star anise cookies dipped in chocolate and marzipan are tasty. A quiet shop tucked in the Jewish quarter of the historical town of Toledo. Don't miss it when you are there!

Nuns make the marzipan here
Nov 2014 • Couples
We visited solely to try out the marzipan. You can purchase local marzipan made by the nuns at the shop here. There are many places to enjoy marzipan but it's nice to support the local nuns as well.
