Museu Nacional do Azulejo


The Museu Nacional do Azulejo is housed in the old convent of the Poor Clares of Madre de Deus, founded in June 1509 by Queen D. Leonor.
The permanent exhibition features tiles from the late 15th century to the present - mostly manufactured in Portugal - as well as three-dimensional ceramic objects. The visit route includes the spaces of the building - classified as a national monument -, namely the Church, the high and low Choirs, the Cloister and the Chapels of D. Leonor and Santo António, where the Madre de Deus Nativity is located, one of the oldest and most important Portuguese nativity scenes.
