Very educational in learning the history of tile making in Portugal how they were made to tell a story since the majority of the population could not read.

Beautifully displayed in a converted 16th century convent this museum is a must for art lovers. The tiles on display represent 500 years of development and you will be using your camera constantly. In the premises there is also an absolutely stunning church. Highly recommended

Of course, the tiles are amazing. But, learn about the history and evolution of tile making in Portugal. New discoveries are constant as people around the country make donations.
