Full description
Your tour will begin with a small footpath tour through the streets of Alfama, as you look carefully at the tile-designed buildings which are present there. Afterwards, you will visit the National Tile Museum, not only to acquire knowledge, but to visit a place which is also itself historic, like the former convent of Madre Deus.

It will then be time to put into practice what you have seen, with the ceramic factory Constância Azul as your tile lab. You will visit this atelier with years of tile tradition, responsible for works that are visible throughout the city of Lisbon. Professionals from the atelier will be in charge of all activities, showing you the daily labor of this place. You will be presented with all of the production steps, from the receiving of raw material through to the tile packaging. Your experience in the factory will then end with the creation of your own tile, as you apply an ancestral tile technique present in this territory.

Following the activities carried out during the morning, and after a lunch break, you will advance to a second local theme, wine. After a brief wine tasting, you will visit the Quinta and Palace of Bacalhôa, in Azeitão. Here you will not only visit an important tile art collection divided by different artistic movements and time periods, but you will also understand and follow the wine production of one of the most prestigious houses of Portugal.
