Pastéis de Belém - Belém Tarts

You'll often see a crowd outside the Pastéis de Belém shop, which attracts mobs of locals as well as tourists.


Inside, the tables are likely to be packed with hungry pastry aficionados. (If you can't find a seat, try one of the other dining rooms, which are scattered throughout the connecting storefronts.)


If you want to enjoy pastéis as the natives do, sprinkle the warm custard tarts with cinnamon and sugar.


Don't miss a pilgrimage to the bakery on the premises, where you can observe workers unloading trays of tarts behind glass.

Need a car in Europe?

If you live outside the EU, a tax-free Renault or Peugeot tourist car lease can be cheaper than renting for visits of 21+ days. Minimum driver age is 18, there' s no upper age limit, and rates include insurance.
