Welcome to Madrid
The wooden façade recalls an old-fashioned sweetshop and time seems to have stopped in this traditional shop, which sells small packets and transparent boxes of violets tied delicately with a ribbon.
These sweets used to be very famous, as they were a common gift for children on their birthdays or for other social events, and they have lost none of their charm in this shop, which guarantees their authenticity and special flavour. Violets are a traditional sweet in some parts of France and their manufacture is complicated, making them a much sought after delicacy. La Violeta also sells other sweets, including crystalised natural violets, glacé fruit, chocolates, etc.
