I am from Madrid, love the city and want to share my special addresses. Every day a new idea, place or thing to do in Madrid. Everything has been thoroughly tested but it is only a personal opinion.

Sweets and candy - Caramelos Paco









Caramelos Paco (calle Toledo 55) is something very dear to me. My dad goes there every week to replenish his provisions of candy that then offers to all of us when we go for lunch to his house. He enjoys as a little child maybe because he is diabetic and can only imagine but not taste the joy of savouring sweets.

In 1936, Francisco Redondo Moreno gave birth to a small grocery establishment that, over the years, became specialized in candies and sweets. A dream for children of that time that few could achieve due to rationing and shortages of the postwar years.

Any candy existing in the market can be found there and gathering at its shopwindow is a mistic experience. 
The owners have expanded the business selling  online and personalizing candy for companies and institutions. There is also a Fiestas Paco at number 52 on the same Toledo street for parties and costumes.
