Casa Piriquita & Piriquita II
A long-established family business that specialises in local pastries and delicacies, most notably Sintra's famous Queijadas and Travesseiros. Founded in 1862 the bakery acquired its name from King Carlos's nickname for Constância Gomes who co-founded the business. Carlos was a daily visitor during his stay in Sintra in the summer months. During the '40s the Travesseiro, a pastry stuffed with sweet eggs and almonds, was developed here and is still made according to the secret house recipe. A second Piriquita can be found around the corner to the original.
