The best marzipan you have ever tasted comes from this little shop located in the maze-like alleys of Hydra town. It’s known countrywide for its delicacy and tenderness – in peak season they sell well over 150 boxes per day!

Anna Tsagkaris is 86 years old, but still in the shop making fresh marzipan every day. She is helped by her son Kiriakos and her grandson Dimitris, who will sell and beautifully pack the treats. Enjoy some amigdolata right there and then take some back home with you.
