National tile museum
beautiful musum, with ancient azulejos wich are popular in Portugal
The easiest way to get to this museum is to take a taxi, as we did. It wasn’t too expensive. The museum hosts one of a kind collection of tiles (azulejos) from several centuries. I especially liked the tile displays that presented a story in pictures or “tile paintings” (see some of the pictures that I posted).The museum is located in a former convent and it is part of the attraction as well. The chapel has very elaborate decorations. There was a wedding ceremony going on in the chapel during our visit, so we got to see a little bit of it.
