Museu Nacional do Azulejo
Azulejo—beautiful glazed tiles—are a ubiquitous adornment throughout Portugal. They cover the facades and interiors of many houses in Lisbon and are even used to impart information as historic markers. The National Azulejo Museum, located in a 16th-century convent, has a permanent exhibition that illustrates the history of Portuguese tiles from the 16th century to the present. You can also see the remarkable azulejo mural, Grande Vista de Lisboa, to get an idea of what the city looked like before the earthquake of 1755.
