Pleasantly surprised by the breadth of azuléjos from various time periods, as well as the beauty of the surroundings. Lovely cafe to sit and have a tea or coffee in within an outdoor courtyard after your visit. Highly recommend!

The azulejos museum is situated within a former convent. I am not keen on the religious tiles nor on the very heavily decorated chapel but the more modern tiles are beautiful. There is also a small cafe with very friendly staff and delicious pastries. I...More
