Azulejos are an integral part of Portuguese daily life. The traditional glazed tiles are celebrated here through collections ranging from Hispano-Arabic trends and the 18th century Delft school to modern applications. Part of the Gulbenkian Foundation, the museum is housed in the former Madre de Deus convent. It also features a Baroque church that pays tribute to this ornamental art form, works by azulejo artists – including Almada Negreiros, Carlos Botelho and Maria Keil – a library, café and shop selling contemporary and replica tiles.
