"Fogaça" is a sweet, round bread, topped by four beaks, representing the four towers of the castle of Feira. This sweet has a long tradition, for it used to be made before the vow made to St. Sebastian, to end the plague, which killed large numbers in Feira. Fulfilling the promise made to the saint, every year in Santa Maria da Feira is held the Feast of Fogaceiras, where the vow is this "fogaça" to loaf, carried on the head by the Fogaceiras.
