Tiles Museum & Tiles Making Workshop

VISIT TO THE TILES MUSEUM AND TILES MAKING WORKSHOPDeparture to the National Museum of Azulejo. The “Museu Nacional do Azulejos” is located in the former convent of Madre de Deus, founded in 1509 by Queen Leonor, widow of King João II and sister of King Manuel I. The building has noteworthy architectural spaces integrated in the visit route of the museum. The very old base of the collection covers a period between the 15th and beginning of the 19th centuries. It has been subsequently enriched with new pieces that allow the setting up of a route between archaic painted ceramic tiles (Azulejos) from the second half of the 15th century and contemporary tile production.We start with a guided visit of the museum and its rich collection and after the vist, a workshop on the Art of painting Azulejops will take place. The group will (eventually) be divided into sub groups and while one part visit the Museum, the others will be at the workshop and vice-versa.At the end of the activity the participants will be offered a coffee-break in the Museum Restaurant.NB! Max 25 persons can partcipate in the workshop at the time
