Pasteis de Belém

It seems to be always crowded: the shop Pasteis de Belém in Lisboas city quarter Belém not far away from the famous Mosteiro dos Jerónimos. It might be because it is so close to the tourist attractions, because it is named in so many guidebooks or because of its products.

Here they sell the famous Pastel de Nata or Pastel de Belém – a fantastic sweet I cannot get enough of. It is an egg tart pastry which was created before the 18th century CE by Catholic monks at the monastery in Belém. It is today seen as a Portuguese specialty – but they originally imported it from France. Nonetheless it is one of the best desserts you can get!
