After dinner we went back to Manteigaria for coffee and for the famous Portuguese custard pie, Pasteis de nata. 

The store opens until midnight and there is always a line.

Manteigaria is known for serving their Pasteis de nata hot and delicious.


Beside coffee and pastries they also sell sherry liquor


Coffee and Pasteis de Nata for me and for Hoa is a glass of sherry.


Open kitchen so you can see how they are making the pastries.


Piping the cream inside the pie dough.


The pastries is always hot so it is so delicious! 


Tonight is our last night in Lisbon so we decided to walk around a bit.


Escalators in the Alfama neighborhood


We are now on the Praca de Comercio


Crossing the street to get to the River Tagus.


On a hill on the left you can see the statue of Cristo Rei and on the right is the bridge of 25 Abril.


This is Cais das Colunas (Columns Pier) -Gorgeous view from here.




Enjoying our last night in Lisbon.



The main square in Praca de Comercio


It was a quiet evening and the weather was just perfect for a stroll.


On the left is the Equestrian statue of King Jose and in the center in the Triumphal Arch of Praca do Comercio.


Rua Augusta, one of the busiest street in this neighborhood.

We had such a wonderful in Portugal!  This is our second time in Portugal and we are so glad that this time we were able to visit all the things we did not get to see the first time.

The seafood here is amazing, and the people are also very nice.  Until the next time!



NEXT.... Florence, Italy
