Luis Mira, a confectioner from Jijona, started his business selling turrón (nougat) in 1842, from a stall in Plaza Mayor. During the reign of Isabella II, he became supplier to the Royal Household, and the sixth generation of the Mira family continues to run the establishment in Calle Jerónimo.
In order to conserve the mid-19th century appearance, it has remained strictly a confectioners and has steered clear of the fashion for sweet shops with cafés in them. This is the only turrón manufacturer dating from the mid-19th century and is now one of the most important of its kind in Europe. It is so famous that it sends its products to customers both inside and outside Spain. It doesn’t only sell turrón, though, as you can buy all kinds of extraordinary mouthwatering sweet treats here.
