Eating Portuguese Tarts in Lisbon

Known as Nata by the locals these delicious custard tarts are listed as one of the top five things you must not miss in Lisbon. Therefore of course we started our Christmas Escape 2017 Tour with a competition ‘Who could eat the most tarts during our visit there’.

Lisbon offers a taste of the relaxed culture of the Portuguese old town lifestyle.  You can wander in the quaint, pretty streets, hitch an old style tram or simply take the steep steps to the church with a fabulous view…hopefully the bells will drown out the street musician who played last time we visited in 2016.

A delightful coastal walk in Cascais, woodland wander in vine country and a hike up into the mountains are all perfect to unwind.  And of course regular visits to the traditional local cafes for delicious coffee and of course infamous Portuguese tarts.   You can’t miss a trip to Sintra the city of castles and palaces to truly enchant you.  Plus a steady stroll to Belem passing the Tagus River overlooked by the statue of The Redeemer.

So who won the Portuguese Custard tart competition; our lovely regular guest; Tony

We’re not telling you how many he ate?

We’ll be revisiting Lisbon in February 2020 so sign up to the newsletter to grab your space.

Thanks Diane
