According to archives of Torre do Tombo, the first references to the famous Sintra cheese-cakes date back to the thirteenth century, during the reign of King Sancho II. At that time, these cheese cupcakes were a form of payment of rents. It is presumed that its origin is the location of Ranholas, where they were produced by a lady called Maria Sapa, in the mid-eighteenth century. In the nineteenth century the main factories were established, as the current Sapa, the first one and still with Maria Sapa's family, Piriquita, Gregório and the Casa do Preto.
