Lisbon Tiles
Tile making has a century old tradition in Portugal. Lisbon is oftenly talked about "the Tile City" as especially in the old town many fassades of its buildings are completely covered with tiles. This was a useful protection against damage through the rainy winters in past centuries. But the tile art in Portugal really comes to it's best inside the buildings. The Churches and the noble houses they all have their uniqe style and touch through the art of Aulejos- tiles !

This is one of the most beautiful museums of Portugal for the fact that it is situated in an ancient Conventus, the Madre Deus Convent, dating back to the 16 century and it has tiles collections representing 5 centuries of this characteristic português art.
