These are the rest of the pictures from the day we went to Belem, a seaside town/quarter about five kilometers outside Lisbon’s centre. It was the most touristy part we went to (there was really very few tourists in the centre, or they were mixed in enough with the locals to not be noticeable) and it was the day we did the most things/sights: the explorers monument, the Tower of Belem, the modern art museum, the cathedral, the botanical gardens (where Milo was very taken with the ‘kitchen’/chicken) and of course the famous Pastels de Belem – the shop that supposedly(?) invented the custard tarts is there. It’s massive, and they sell them as fast as they bake them, which means that they’re warm when you get them. Yum!

    I’ve never been to Portugal – or heard they were famous for their pastels.
    I have to say that picture of you and Milo is so very cute 🙂

      They are amazing! Especially the freshly baked ones!
