Gastronomy

Colares

Extensive and rich, the gastronomy of Sintra makes the mouth of any gourmand water.
Meat-dishes feature the «leitão de Negrais» (suckling pig), the Mercês pork , «cabrito» (goatling ) and roast veal . The Sintra region coast provides an abundance of fine fish, shellfish and molluscs. So it is possible to have an appetizing sea-bass or bream, enjoy an octopus or savour clams and barnacles.

With regards to confectionery, the highlight inevitably goes to the «queijadas de Sintra», ancestral sweet pastry dating back, at least, to the Middle Ages. But there are others worth trying: the «travesseiros», the «pastéis da Pena», the «nozes de Galamares », the «fofos de Belas», along with a series of traditional jams made according to traditional methods.
