Reviewed 4 December 2008

If you have already seen lots of museums you get to the point where you only want to go if it has something really special. This one does. Azulejos are tiles. You find them all over the middle east, the Mediterranean countries, and in Latin America. The ones in Portugal are beautiful and decorate rooms and buildings all over the country. This museum tells you about them and shows lots of examples of very historical and beautiful ones. Plus the museum is located in a former convent which is nice to see on it's own. The tiles also make wonderful gifts to take home.
