Your experience

Highlights

  • See how the azulejos are made according to old traditions
  • Painting your own tile after you have learned the basics of art
  • Discover the most impressive works of art around Lisbon

Description

In Lisbon, you will come across Azulejos all over the place, colourful painted ceramic tiles that have been used since the late Middle Ages, especially in Spain and Portugal. The beautiful azulejos are the result of an art form with a long history in the country that began during the Arab occupation of the Iberian peninsula. You start this day trip south of Lisbon to the beautiful Azeitão region, where you will visit the famous Azulejos de Azeitão workshop. Learn how tiles are made according to old tradition.

After you have learned the basics of art, you will have the opportunity to paint your own tile, which will be baked later and sent to your hotel in Lisbon or home, if you wish (not including shipping costs). After a morning full of creativity it is time for lunch. The fishing village of Sesimbra, which is only a short drive away, is ideal for a delicious lunch. Return to Lisbon and see some of the city's most impressive tile works en route.

In the afternoon you will visit the beautiful 15th century Madre de Deus Monastery, which houses the Azulejo Museum. The interior of the church is a baroque masterpiece, considered a total work of art, where all the elements have been designed to form a perfect whole. The museum has an impressive collection of tiles ranging from the 15th century to contemporary artists and includes the most important international schools, such as the Spanish and Dutch ones, as well as some iconic works by Portuguese masters such as Bordalo Pinheiro, Raúl Lino and Maria Keil.
