Honeymoon in Lisbon – Day 5

Hello everybody!

I have prepared a special itinerary for day 5.

One of the most impressive monuments I have visited in Lisbon is the Mosteiro dos Jeronimos. It houses the Museu da Marinha, the Maritime Museum, and other various exhibits.

Amazing details on the Mosteiro dos Jeronimos

Next to the Mosteiro dos Jeronimos, you can find the Torre de Belem, a fortified tower, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, as it was a crucial part of the Age of Discoveries.

Also, near the Torre de Belem, you can find the Padrão dos Descobrimentos, another monument dedicated to the Age of Discoveries.

Tip: Just across the street from the Mosterio dos Jeronimos, you can find a Starbucks. Right next to the Starbucks is THE PLACE to try Pasteis de Belem – Portuguese custard tarts which are amazing! Pasteis de Belem is also the name of the place which sells them here, and they have been making the tarts since 1837, following the original recipe from the Mosterio dos Jeronimos!

  1. Oh my god, I love Portuguese custard tarts, I can eat them all my life! Pretty nice way to spend your day 5 honeymooning in Portugal with beautiful sights and great food!

  2. I have to visit Portugal! So many historic towns and cities to experience and I’ve read a lot about these famous Portuguese tarts that must be tried.

    1. If you have the time, I also recommend at least a day trip to Sintra. Visit Quinta da Regaleira and Palacio da Pena. There are some amazing views from above. Check out the other honeymoon posts for more ideas.

  3. The Monastery is beautiful and well worth visiting. I loved the pastei de Belem. You can’t visit the area and not stop for at least one tart, but in my case, it was one to eat while I was there and a couple to take away as well. 🙂
