Expert review of Museu Nacional do Azulejo
Lisbon's iconic blue and white azulejo tiles adorn almost every historic corner of the city. This museum, in a converted 16th-century convent, shows all manner of azulejo, from the early Moorish style that spawned the infamous design to the more modern interpretations. The highlight is certainly the 36-metre long tilework of the city, as seen before the 1755 earthquake.
Entry is four euros, or free on Sundays before 2pm.
