DESCRIPTION

Surprised to see traditional Azulejo tiles around you when you visit Portugal?

Come with us on a complete tour that will take you to know 500 years of the history of Portuguese Azulejo.

Azulejo is the most enduring cultural manifestation in Portugal. It has crossed five centuries of our history and is full of meanings.

Throughout its existence the azulejo has reflected the soul of the Portuguese people, from its history to its daily life. It have been crafts, art and industry. It served the ostentation of the rich and powerful, gave body to the great religious and military representations but also was instrument of decoration, narrative and devotion.

In this tour we will meet a few remarkable azulejo landmarks, traveling from Lisbon to one of the most beautiful regions to the south of the capital, Serra da Arrábida, trying to provide a rich and alive experience on the Azulejo theme.

To know how it has evolved over the centuries we will start by visiting the azulejo Museum in Lisbon. To learn how it is made, we will meet a traditional workshop and here we will invite you to paint your own tile. But to be able to admire and be impressed by the art of the azulejo we will visit an exponent of the azulejo, a palace of the sixteenth century, true relic of azulejo that was an old property of King Manuel I. The palace is surrounded by vineyards and olive trees and is situated on the slopes of the verdant Serra da Arrábida, 40 km from Lisbon.

We will also visit a well-known winery where wine and art combine, doing a wine tasting and visiting an art collection.
In the wine cellar, between the barrels, we will be surprised with an extraordinary exhibition of azulejo from the 16th to the 20th century.

At lunch we can opt for a local restaurant where we can taste the well-known grilled fish of Setúbal.
