Day 3 in Lisbon! We took the train to Belém, because we wanted to see the Belém tower and eat the most famous and most recommended custard tarts at Pastéis de Belém.

By the time we arrived at Belém it was lunch time, so we had lunch at Pastéis de Belém. Not everyone knows this, but inside the place there’s A LOT of room to sit. The long line outside for the takeway is kind of misleading, but luckily we were tipped beforehand.

The custard tarts were REALLY GOOD!!! We liked the ones from Manteigaria before, but these…. these were EXCEPTIONAL!

We took a box of 6 custard tarts with us on our way back as well.

Two of us went up on this monument (it’s not the Belém tower), the ones with student passes and without fear of heights ;). The others would rather climb the Belém tower. The 360° view from the monument was pretty!

We wanted to go inside the Belém tower, but first(?) disappointment of the day.. it was CLOSED. A simple Google search could have warned us that it was closed on Mondays.. we probably saved on long queueing time though.

We enjoyed the weather and the occasional spray of mist from the fountain here the rest of the afternoon.

Before going back to the city center Lisbon, we had ice cream at Santini. They have a lot of delicious flavours to choose from and they all taste really good! I had pineapple and white grapes.

In the evening, we wanted to eat steak sandwich at a restaurant we found online, but the place was CLOSED due to holiday. Lesson of the day was clearly to check the opening hours of all the places we want to go to, hehe.

We were all very tired, so we decided to eat at a place near the steak sandwich restaurant. We had, among other things, lobster rice, clams and pork and clams. The food and service was okay, but with our sleepy heads we accidentally tipped the waiter wayyyy too much.. Oops. Probably made his day :’).
