Product Description

Azulejos, or Portuguese ceramic tiles, decorate all types of surfaces in Portugal, ranging from walls of buildings (palaces, churches, railway stations and ordinary homes) to benches, fountains, tables, staircases, and house names and numbers. Our reproductions are from Moorish and Spanish inspiration like the very first azulejos found in Portugal in the 16th century. The tiles are made in a small workshop by Amélia and José Sá Nogueira, a couple of passionate artisans, amongst the best Portuguese ceramists who work for museums and palaces in Portugal. They are completely handmade and hand painted using traditional techniques, respecting historic colors and patterns.

keeping tradition alive

Tiles are a fixture of culture and design in many parts of Portugal, and you will even find them on famous buildings like the São Bento Railway Station in Porto.

Even though tiles are originally from Egypt, they were first brought to Portugal by the Arabs, in the 13th century. However, it was in the XVI century that King D. Manuel really introduced the azulejos to Portugal. They were imported from Seville after the King’s visit to Spain. It is said that he was so enchanted by these tiles, that he had to bring some to decorate the National Palace of Sintra.

We Are Portugal proudly partnered with one of the most recognized contemporary artists, that keep producing this unique form of art, using the same techniques of the XVI century and bring them to you.
