Cavacas (a type of traditional Portuguese sweet glazed pastry) are one of the most characteristic delicacies of the Municipality of Batalha, more specifically of the Parish of Reguengo do Fetal. Older residents tell stories of the traditional cavacas,
which originally came from Ponte de Lima (a town in Northern Portugal) and were brought to Reguengo by Maria dos Ramos, who was originally from the small northern town.


Cavacas from Reguengo are very popular, especially on feast days for the villages in the Municipality of Batalha, as they are always perfectly presented, with immaculately white icing and a unique flavour and texture.
