In visiting this museum, I expected a dazzling display of Azulejos from all over Portugal in a plethora of different styles. Unfortunately, the predominant style in this museum is that of the building itself (bucolic scenes in blue and white). In other words, the collection...More

Take blue line to Santa Apolonia. Then bus 759 to Igreja Madre Deus. The building is AMAZING! It is free on Sundays only for locals... all others pay(5)! It’s totally worth it! And FYI, the folks at the “Ask Me!” offices around town are very...More

The museum is located in a 16th century convent on the east side of town, a short cab ride from the town center. We fell in love with azulejos during our trip to Portugal so this was a great place to learn more about them...More

I have never seen so many beautiful tiles at one place. After we had seen the MAAT, we took a taxi to this museum and had even a better experience than MAAT.

I was completely blown away by this museum. The building is completely non-descript from the outside and is out of the way, but there are inexpensive city buses from town center that drop you right across the street. It is well worth the time and...More

I fell in love with tiles in Prodigal. I just wish they weren't so heavy to carry back to the US. Although I appreciate the history of tiles, the modern examples are exquisite. The Church is also beautiful and the garden is a great place...More
