(12 answers)
By Leslie Local March 15, 2018

Bom dia :)

I was interested in Azulejos and I checked several places to see Portuguese Azulejos in Lisbon:

- Fronteira Palace
- Monastery of São Vicente de Fora
- The André Saraiva Mural in São Vicente de Fora
- National Azulejo Museum
- Fabrica Viuva Lamego
- Jardim da Quinta dos Azulejos
- Queluz National Palace

Is there anything else you can recommend?

obrigado :)

My piece of the advice: you just need to ramble around the city. In the area of São Bento and Príncipe Real for example you will have plenty of different patterns ;)

Hi Leslie,
Yes, there is much more to see! Tiles are everywhere in Lisbon, they are part of our everyday life, in many buildings and public spaces. The city is an open air museum for tiles! You can have a look on my LISBOA ARCHITECTURE WALKS & TRIPS / blog, I have posting two articles about tiles.

Dear Leslie,

for a very thorough and historic overview of Azulejos in Lisbon, you can visit the National Museum of Azulejos, nearby the Tejo River, great location: http://www.museudoazulejo.gov.pt/
And when you stroll around Lisbon, all over the city you'll find buildings that use Azulejos as cover-up for their façades. You will also find great azulejo-covered churches from the Baroque time, just go inside and find out... They're all yours.

“They are all mine”
It is a very cool expression!!!

Thanks for your kindness.
Lisbon is an open-air museum itself.
I think everything I see are artworks.

obrigado :)

Hi,
Look up to the buildings.There are some of them in the historical areas that are covered with azulejos.
Have lunch at "cervejaria Trindade", a restaurant in an ancient convent with beautiful 17th century tiles. http://www.cervejariatrindade.pt/

Thank you so much for your consideration for me.
I will think you of your kindness in the places where you told me.

A good trip is to see good places and eat delicious food, but I think the most memorable trip is to get to know good people.
I am happy to know you, Inês.

obrigado :)

The best way to travel in Lisbon is to walk a lot and sometimes wander the streets. I think that will make Lisbon more attractive.

obrigado :)

Hello,
You already have the most important places listed.
You can also go to a Tiles factory and check all process. That is not in Lisbon, it will be around 30 km away from the city.
Enjoy it

So much research and planning is needed.

Hi Leslie,

You should visit the Sintra National Town Palace, with the original VXI century mudejar tiles.

Enjoy Lisbon,

Hey Leslie :)

Have a check in Graça, beautiful shapes and various colours.
You have also Lapa and Estrela neighbourhoods where some tiles are more old but still authentic.

Hope it helps,

Nice journey in LX !

Hi Leslie,

Tile art is a beautiful part of Lisbon and City Guru has worked to build a walking tour which covers Lisbon's walls from one edge to another. We pass by art-deco tiles or geometric and textured ones, but we also see some hand painted tiles, of which a few are more than 200 years old. Meanwhile, we also look at other kinds of modern and traditional street art as we walk.

Check out this tour at http://thecityguru.com/en/ :)

Thanks and Hope you have a nice time in lisbon
