Fodor's Review

This fascinating museum tells the story of Spain's first chocolate imports: Mexican cacao beans brought back to Spain by the explorer Hernán Cortés. The collection also includes 16th-century hot-chocolate mugs and 19th-century chocolate-production tools. The best part comes at the end, with a chocolate-tasting session.
