Museu Nacional do Azulejo

Museu Nacional do Azulejo is of Lisbon’s finest museums showcasing the ubiquitous trademark azulejos from the 15th century to the modern day. The Museu Nacional do Azulejo building is a former convent of the Igreja de Nossa Senhora da Madre de Deus and provides an inspiring backdrop.

It was founded for the Poor Clare order of nuns in 1509 by Dona Leonor, wife of Dom João II. Highlights include a 36m-long panel depicting Lisbon before the 1755 earthquake, a Manueline cloister and opulent baroque chapel with gilt wood carvings.

The courtyard gardens are also a wonderful place to enjoy lunch. The museum is slightly out of town and is best reached by taxi or the 104/105 buses from Praça do Comercio.
