Fodor's Review

To fully understand the craftsmanship that goes into making the ubiquitous azulejos, visit this magnificent museum at the 16th-century Madre de Deus convent and cloister. Displays range from individual glazed tiles to elaborate pictorial panels. The 118-foot Panorama of Lisbon (1730) is a detailed study of the city and waterfront and is reputedly the country's longest azulejo piece. The richly furnished convent church contains some sights of its own: of note are

the gilt baroque decoration and lively azulejo works depicting the life of St. Anthony. There are also a little café-bar and a gift shop that sells tile reproductions.
