Madre De Deus Convent - Review
The Madre de Deus Convent in Xabregas, on the western territory of Lisbon is absolutely stunning. Queen Dona Leonor commissioned this lovely place. It is now home to the intriguing National Azulejo or Glazed Tile Museum.
Ornately decorated and intricately carved, this extravagant church is sure to be something memorable on your trip to Lisbon. The altar is a beautiful gold and all of the interiors are extremely intricately decorated. The place is a must visit due to its sheer grandeur. If you like old churches, the place can hardly disappoint but the architecture is sure to leave you mesmerized on your visit to Lisbon. The National Tile Museum is also an interesting places to visit in Lisbon.

Stunning visit. Yes, a tad out of the way - but easy by bus - we got the 759 bus from city centre right to the door in less than 15 mins. A haven - nice cafe, beautiful garden - and the exhibition itself is stunning. Download the app before you go - useful background whilst walking round. Note you can get a joint museum/Pantheon ticket at a good combined rate, should you plan to do the two visits on the same day, but not well advertised. One of THE best visits of our weekend.
A stunning selection of Portuguese tiles. Fully worth a brief drive / moderate walk to get here. The tiles themselves are marvelous, and the museum is a former monastery with a courtyard and a chapel (tiled, of course). The dining area has indoor and outdoor space that would be pleasant no matter the weather. Nice gift shop.
It is very impressive to see that there is a museum dedicated to the tiles. At first it may seem like little, but it is highly recommended. In the collection there are tiles from several centuries ago, of different styles and colors. On the top floor there is a panoramic image of Lisbon all made in tile as well. The church that is part of the museum is very impressive. Highly recommended the visit. On Sundays it is free until 2 PM for residents in Portugal.
Plan of expend 2-3 hours at museum. You'll see title from 100's of years ago to today's time. Entrance fee is €5 for adults and less for seniors and children. There is a nice restaurant in museum food is good and prices are affordable not super expensive.
The building is nice and gardens look great. Exhibition itself not as much but it's worth visiting of you have time. Not everything is in English unfortunately but most of it is. Neighborhood is not pleasant at all so avoid walking there and take a bus of possible. It will save you some time and you will lose nothing in terms of sightseeing.
