Unfortunately for visitors, the line leading to Pastéis de Bélem’s bakery counter may be the longest line found anywhere in the city, as salivating hordes wait their turn to taste the original, secret recipe invented by the monks of the nearby Jerónimos Monastery in Santa Maria de Bélem, itself an architecture masterpiece that places it at the top of any Lisbon must-list.
