Pastéis de Belém sponsors the Forum

In 1837, the baking of the “Pastéis de Belém” was begun in buildings joined to the refinery, following the ancient “secret recipe” from the monastery. Passed on and known exclusively to the master confectioners who hand-crafted the pastries in the “secrets room”, this recipe remained unchanged to the present day.

In fact, the only true “Pastéis de Belém” contrive, by means of a scrupulous selection of ingredients, to offer even today the flavor of the time-honoured Portuguese sweetmaking.
Since 1837, locals have gone there to get them warm out of the oven and sprinkled with the cinnamon and powdered sugar.
The Antiga Confeitaria de Belém can be found next to Mosteiro dos Jerónimos and is surely a must-do visit to complete your Portuguese experience.
