The National Tile Museum (Museu Nacional do Azulejo) is one of Portugal’s most important national museums, for its unique collection of azulejo tiles.

The tiles are a distinctive artistic expression of Portuguese culture, and you’ll be able to learn more about them inside the former Convent of Madre Deus building, founded in 1509 by Queen Leonor.

Take a journey through the history of tiles, from the 15th century to the present day. Alongside the history of tiles, you’ll explore a beautiful example of Portuguese Baroque that’s profusely decorated with gilded carvings, paintings, and – of course – tiles.

Gorgeous historical tile work inside an ornate old church. There are tile painting workshops available for an extra fee. A must-see museum.
