Founded in 1855, this pastry and sweets shop is the place to go for an old-fashioned sugar high. Casa Mira is famous for its turrón, which is why you can purchase some of the Christmas sweet there practically year round, but you can also get chocolate truffles, candies and flaky pastries from the small army of white-coated shop assistants.
