This church is a gloomy baroque affair. It was closed for renovation when we were here, but, in any event, locals prefer to pop into the adjacent building, because the handful of cloistered nuns maintain a centuries-old tradition of baking sweets for sale.

You will see a torno, a kind of timber turnstile set in a window. Ring for a nun, order what you want and put money into the turnstile. This swivels around and out come your bocaditos de almendra (almond nibbles) or rollitos de anís (aniseed rolls), at €3 for 200g.
