Searching for Holy Cookies

I'm convinced this is one of the best kept secrets of Madrid.  There is a small church and convent behind San Miguel Market where there is a secret cookie operation going on, in El Convento de Corpus Christi.  When researching online there is very little information so all I knew was we had to ring a door bell and a nun would give us instructions on where to find the cookies.  When we got there it felt like an illegal drug deal...the door is basically an unmarked door in a small square and the deal is done via a lazy susan without seeing anyone. I don't want to give too much information because I wouldn't want to ruin the fun of the adventure...if you ever find yourself in Madrid make sure you seek out these cookies.

So Many Choices



  1. The best cookies kept secret!!!

  2. You have the cookie monster's attention. Definitely putting it down as a must see/find for when I go to Madrid.
