The mantecadas are the emblematic and most distinguished sweet of the town, known in the region for being comparable in shape to a muffin or a sobao pasiego, but distinguished by a unique flavour.

This distinctive flavour comes from the care taken in their preparation and the quality of their main ingredients: butter, eggs, flour and sugar.

These desserts have a rich heritage, being part of a culinary tradition that spans more than two centuries.

The first mentions of this recipe date back to the year 1800, which makes it not only unique but exceptional, as the slogan on its packaging proclaims.
