Great cookies made by nuns
You can have very interesting experience buying cookies from the nuns. They make amazing cookies. There is a doorbell button, press the bell and wait for few minutes. You cannot see the nuns, they will be behind a lazy susan in the wall. Just pay and a box of almond cookies will appear.

The nuns only speak Spanish, so just say “comprar dulces” or just “dulces”. A pack cost 6 euros, try to have exact amount of money. They might have several types of cookies.
