Kelcey Grogan (The Pennsylvania State University)-CIEE Alcalá Spring 2012: Convent of Clarissas of San Diego




En Alcalá de Henares hay un convento famoso de monjas. Se llama El Convento de las Clarisas de San Diego. Las monjas no tienen permitido interacciones con personas del mundo exterior cara a cara.


Las monjas venden las almendras garrapiñadas. ¡Las almendras están deliciosas! La gente puede  comprar las almendras en el convento. Una monja se sienta detrás de una ventana cerrada que puede girar (TORNO). La persona afuera dice cuántas cajas de almendras quiere y pone su dinero en la ventana. La ventana gira y después hay una caja de almendras.






There is a famous convent of nuns in the city of Alcala de Henares. It is called the Convent of Saint Clarissa of San Diego. The nuns are not permitted to have face to face contact with people from the outside world.


The nuns sell candied almonds. The almonds are delicious! The public is able to buy the almonds at the convent.  A nun sits behind a closed window that can turn. The person outside says how many boxes of almonds they want and then place their money in the window. It turns, and after there is a box of almonds.
