Pastéis de Belém
Belem, home of the most beautiful monuments and sights in Lisbon. Most monuments and museums are FREE during Sunday morning. If you’re full of energy, rent a bike and ride it along the river. There’s a bike lane all the way through and the road is flat. You’ll definitely have a great experience.
After breakfast, we initiate the visit to the famous Fábrica dos Pastéis de Belém. The Pastéis de Belém are sold since 1834 and their fame has crossed borders, taking Portugal’s name and conventual sweets throughout the world. A sweet of crispy puff pastry and browned cream frosting, whose secret confection is known only by 2 or 3 pastry chefs at the famous Fábrica dos Pastéis de Belém. What is known is that the delicious puff pastry tart is filled with a cream made of milk, eggs and vanilla, as its recipe is secret.
