A CNN dá destaque à Confeitaria Nacional e ao seu bolo rei, destancando-a entre as mais antigas e belas casas de doçaria de todo o mundo.
Confeitaria Nacional (Lisbon)
An ornate pastry shop with cream-colored walls trimmed in gold and overlooked by a mirrored ceiling, the Confeitaria Nacional opened in 1829 in a stately corner building on the Praca da Figueira square.
It's still run by descendents of the founder.
The traditional Portuguese Christmas cake Bolo-Rei (King's Cake) was brought to Portugal by Confeitaria Nacional's Baltazar Rodrigues Castanheiro Filho from the south of France in the 19th century.
Based on the seasonal French favorite Gateau des Rois, the Bolo-Rei is a bread-like cake with raisins, candied fruits and nuts.
At other times of year, it's worth trying one of their popular pasteis de nata custard tarts.
