    Traditional Tile Decoration Workshop

    The azulejo, or tile, industry was born in Portugal in the 16th century.

As the industry grew and styles changed both in color and design, new decorative uses were found, with an emphasis on the preservation of artisan quality.

The people at the artisan’s workshop continue the work of their ancestors, making tiles by hand in a world where most things are made by machines and assembly lines. Your hosts will be delighted to help you discover the world of tile work by breathing life into an art that has inspired the Portuguese for centuries.

You will have the opportunity to paint your own tiles with traditional techniques explained by local artisans, learning the importance of time, care and endless dedication to the art.
