Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

The Tile Museum, housed in a former convent, charts the development of the art of Portuguese azulejos since the 15th century, including a panel depicting Lisbon before the 1755 Earthquake and some striking contemporary tiles. The building is a treat, with a tiny Manueline cloister and a barrel-vaulted church. The shop sells superior tiles, and there's a lovely café.
