    Thanks for sharing a great post on the tile work of Portugal. I’m visiting end of May and have added a few of these locations on my list.

      Hi Amar, I’m thrilled to help. Do share your experiences. I’m writing a few more posts on Lisbon, Porto, and Sintra covering things we did and our itinerary. They should be done in the next few weeks.

    I am so much in love with this post of yours I keep coming back to it regularly. Love all those patterns. I have plans of doing a similar class in Portugal. Hopefully I get there soon.

      Thanks, Sowmya, you’re so kind and sweet. I’m glad this post gives you ideas on joining a workshop and creating your own tiles that you could keep or give to family or friends as a souvenir.

    This is awesome, what a great experience making your own azulejos. And talk about an original souvenir from your trip. Portugal is one of my favorite countries ( along with Spain ), and after visiting Lisbon 2 years ago I am now heading to Porto in July. Your post made me seriously consider booking this activity. Thank for sharing.

      Hi Aga, it was totally awesome to learn about tiles, see them all over the county and then experience the process. Do tell me how your trip to Porto turns out and if you were able to create you own original souvenir 🙂
      We’re enjoying ours and coasters for hot food 🙂

    I have a STRONG love for these tiles and saw them everywhere in Lisbon! I plan on going back, so I’m really glad to have learned that there is a class where you can paint your own! What a unique souvenir to always cherish and remember your trip by! Thanks for including places where these murals can be found, I can’t wait to look for them!
