Lisbon Tile Art Tour: Your Insider Experience

Discover the history of making tiles or “azulejos” with our Lisbon Tile Art Tour. Lisbon’s artisans have been making tiles since the 13th century. The first tiles were blue and white, then yellow and green. At first, they were simple geometric shapes that covered blank spaces on walls. Later, they became more ornate, decorating church altars and depicting Portuguese history and culture. Today, they decorate restaurants, bars, railway stations, palaces, and homes. Every tourist brings home one or two tiles as a souvenir.

Arrábida Mountain will allow you to enjoy breathtaking views, learn about the fascinating history, and take home some fantastic handcrafted souvenirs. This stunningly beautiful area in Portugal is famous for its spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean. It offers many natural attractions, including stunning beaches, lush vegetation, and rugged cliffs.

This natural paradise is just a short drive away from Lisbon. It is abundant with natural wonders that are truly mesmerizing. The rugged coastline stretches as far as the eye can see, with dramatic cliffs plunging into the crystal-clear waters below. The lush green hills surrounding the coast provide a stunning contrast to the deep blue sea. The overall view is unforgettable and breathtaking.

Discover Arrabida Mountain

During your tour, you can explore some astonishing beaches, monasteries dating back to the XVI century, vineyards, palaces, and tiles.
