After a lovely Sunday morning spent exploring the halls of the Gulbenkian Museum (Sundays until 2 p.m. the museum has free admission!), we headed over to explore Belém – site to some of Portugal’s most famous attractions including the Jerónimos Monastery, Monument to the Discoveries and the Tower of Belém. No visit to Belém would be complete without a stop by Pastéis de Belém for Pastel de Nata! Mmmmm… Pastel de Nata is a deliciously sweet egg custard inside a little pastry tart that was originally created in the 1800s! The secret recipe has been under lock & key (literally) and passed down from generation to generation. No other pastais de nata comes close to the original! After taking the trolley to Belém and enjoying our pastais de nata, we walked along the River from the Monument to the Discoveries all the way down to the Tower of Belém. We strolled in the sunshine and enjoyed some Italian sorbetto that we found in a little stand along the way! It was a perfect Sunday! Enjoy some of my favorite shots from Belém!
This sailboat photo is one of my favorites! It just sings with adventure & celebrates summer – don’t you think?
Happy Travel Tuesday, friends! 🙂
