Founded in 1855 by Luis Mira, Casa Mira specialises in turrón, a Spanish nougat popular at Christmas. One day Luis Mira decided to leave his home town of Jijona for Madrid with only a couple of donkeys and cart full of his homemade turrón. Legend has it that he had to restart his journey multiple times because he kept selling out before he could reach Madrid. When he eventually did reach the capital, he opened Casa Mira and the rest is history. Not just popular at Christmas, Casa Mira sells typical Spanish sweet treats all year round.
