In the beginning of the 19th Century, as a result of the 1820’s Liberal Revolution all convents and monasteries in Portugal were ordered to close. In 1834 the clergy and labourers were expelled from the temples.
In a desperate attempt for survival, some monks placed sweet pastries for sale in regular village shops. This attracted customers who soon grew used to savouring the delicious pastries originated in the old monasteries.
In 1837 the baking of the “‘Pastel de Nata” and other conventual sweets (baked according to the ancient monasteries ‘secret recipes’) grew increasingly popular.
These recipes remain unchanged to the present day.
