Why you should visit it
Ironically this place started out as a grocery store back in 1934, but soon turned to the sweeter side off life. This colourful and candystacked little shop is worth a look, and a good place to find popular souvenirs for every kid. Behind the bright yellow facde, you will even find sugar-free versions if you are on a diet.
Try the candy-version of the Spanish drink 'calimocho' – a mix of coke and red wine, normally enjoyed in the summer by Spanish teenagers.
