A sweet delicacy.

The region’s most popular dessert is a delicacy that oringinates in the heart of the region. The famous quesadas are the star speciality of Vega de Pas. It is said that the original recipe is still kept secret. In fact, although many people attempt it, nobody can reproduce the area’s quesadas perfectly. The most popular are the El Macho quesadas, but it doesn’t matter that you have come to Vega for them (even though we highly recommend a trip to El Macho). You can find these quesadas in almost every restaurant and grocery shop. It could be their smoothe cream cheese flavour, or their sweet interior, or some say they are best when they are slightly burnt, but everybody agrees that they are delicious. This is the perfect gastronomic souvenir to bring back with you from Cantabria.
