Casa Mira

30 Carrera de San Jerónimo
Madrid , Spain

An old-fashioned sweet shop established in 1842, Casa Mira is renowned for its homemade turrón, a traditional Christmas nougat made with almonds, sugar, honey, and egg whites. The shop sells the holiday candy year-round and even supplies the Spanish royal family. Inside the store, carved wood, glass display cases, and a marble counter give the space a vintage feel. Shopkeepers cut and weigh the candy to order, whether it’s marzipan or popular turrón varieties like Alicante (hard), Jijona (soft), chocolate, and coconut. Casa Mira also sells fresh baked goods like shortbread and yemas de nuez (walnut and egg-yolk pastries).
