Historia Viva de 5 generaciones
A fifth-generation turronería in Bilbao
Adelia Ivañez, “the Turron-Maker of the Little Vestibule,” is Eladio Ivanez Coloma’s oldest granddaughter, and successor of Correo 12, “Bilbao’s Turron.”
This is the only fifth-generation turronería in Bilbao, three centuries of living family history since 1855, all within their emblematic location, Correo 12, the sweetest vestibule in Bilbao. Now, the shop is run by the family’s fourth and fifth generations: Adelia and Ivan, the founder’s great-granddaughter and great-great grandson.
Correo 12, an emblematic location
Through the years, Turroneria Ivañez has always been located at Correo 12, including 1983 to 2003, a time of special circumstances when they were located in the first floor “apartment” of the same building and clients would come and go between the first floor and the turroneria by way of the staircase. During that time, Bilbainos responded to the business in an exceptional way, and have always remained loyal to the business with their annual visit for their Christmas sweets.
Today, the business has returned to the street level, in the same building and address, Correo 12, keeping the first floor “apartment” as a symbol of their history.
