Secrets kept since the Convent that date back to 1540
In the Confeitaria Santa Luzia’s web site we can taste the love dedicated to the art of conventual confectionery since the nuns first settled in Figueiró dos Vinhos. The secrets of these sweets are nothing more than love and dedication to the pleasure of eating and delighting with unique and unmistakable flavors. In this confectionery prevails the motto that the haste is the enemy of perfection and consequently of flavor, because it is the calm and duration of the preparation of these sweets that gives the delight of the palate combined with the quality of regional and local products used.
