About these ratings

As odd as it may sound, experts say the Museu Nacional do Azulejo (yes, that translates as the National Tile Museum) is one of Portugal's most important museums. Ceramic tiles grouped together in mosaics are the main event of this museum, which is housed inside the Convento Madre de Deus (Convent of the Mother of God). Recent travelers are surprised by their delight in this museum: They also say the museum gift shop's reproduction tiles make wonderful souvenirs. The easiest way to reach the museum is by taxi, but you can also ride buses 718 or 742.

The museum is open Tuesday to Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and admission costs 5 EUR (about $7 USD).
