Every year the Alcázar opens its gothic palace to house a three-day sale of convent cookies, sweets, etc. made by cloistered nuns. These can be bought most days at the various convents, by placing your order in front of a shut door, putting your money in a “lazy susan” opening, and then your order appears without having seen anybody. This has actually become a sort of tourist attraction, though I’ve never done it myself since I don’t really eat sweets. But I like going to this event and seeing everything laid out, since I am there to buy gifts. And it’s always nice to spend time in the Alcázar. If you’re in Sevilla this weekend, check it out.
