Convento de las Mercedarias information
It's not often that buying biscuits feels like going to confession, but step into the vestibule of this ancient convent (if you find it open), push a bell, and a concealed nun on the other side of a wooden partition will invite you to buy a bag of sweet treats (€3 to €7.50). Place your money in a revolving compartment, and within a couple of minutes it will flip back round with your order on it.
