Where can I find mantecados in Seville?

Earlier this month I had a wonderful time visiting Madrid, where I bought delicious mantecado cookies from a nun behind a lazy susan at Los Conventos de las Carboneras near Plaza Mayor. My family and I will be going to Seville next month, and I was wondering where I can share my mantecado purchasing (and eating) experience with them in Seville. Is there a convent where I can purchase mantecados specifically in the traditional lazy-susan style setting from nuns in Seville? I prefer purchasing mantecados this way rather than just stepping into a bakery. Any help is appreciated :D

  1. Lots of Convents selling different cookies/sweets like Santa Ines or Socorro…just google them.

    1. In the Plaza del Cabildo, which is across from the cathedral, right of of Avenida de la Constitucion, is a place where you can buy convent cookies. They employ a lay person as a shop keeper, so there's no lazy susan, but what they sell is delicious!
