In 1837, in Belém (a neighborhood located in the city of Lisbon), the monks of the Jerónimos Monastery had the idea of a recipe that years later would be famous in the 4 corners of the world, and would delight the most varied palates. So in 1837, these monks made the original recipe for this delicacy and started selling the famous “Pastéis de Nata”. At first, with the intention of raising money, in a small pastry shop adjacent to the monastery. At the time, Lisbon and Belém were two separate cities connected by steamships. The presence of the Monastery and the Tower of Belém attracted many tourists, where they were admired by the beauty and mainly by the flavor they had, and soon they were considered: Bethlehem pastries.
Today, we still have pastry chefs who always make these delicious pastéis de belém by hand.
Pastéis de Nata are a symbol of Portuguese culture, which stands out and attracts eyes from all over the world, such as port wine, Portuguese stew, fado and among other spices and delicacies of Portuguese culture.

A Natas D'Ouro , located with two stores, one at each end of the Dom Luís bridge, brings a new concept of flavors, where it combines one of the most coveted things in Portuguese gastronomy: port wine and seasoned custard tarts. This new trend of combining flavors has attracted many tourists to the place to taste this delicacy accompanied by a wine that attracts attention worldwide!
However, there is nothing better than drawing conclusions about all this mixture of flavors that has conquered the most diverse tastes around the world for generations than by visiting the Cream D'Ouro, where they offer Pastéis de Nata in the shape of a Rabelo Boat with a unique and special taste of Port Wine.
