“The delicious Queijadas de Sintra seem to have originated in the town of Ranholas, near Quinta do Ramalhão, parish of São Pedro de Penaferrim. According to the archives of Torre do Tombo, the first references to the famous Queijadas de Sintra date back to the 13th century, the reign of D. Sancho II. At that time, and according to these files, the queijadas were a form of payment of rentals. “(parasintra.blogspot.com)
