Sweet Return to Childhood in Cerro AlegreWant to feel like a kid in a candy store again? You can—in Valparaiso. La Dulceria brings back the colors and sweetness of handmade sweets to Chile's cheery port on Cerro Alegre. Owner Ángela Alfageme learned and honed her craft in Barcelona before opening this successful business.
Her sweets are addictive. Bites that make your face pucker, lollypops of different shapes and sizes, gumdrops to nosh on, and beautiful hard candies with different designs (so pretty you almost don't want to eat them).
Tip: if you get there early, you can see the sweets being made, a true odyssey.
