Tile Tour in Porto
Immerse yourself in the incredible world of Porto tiles and appreciate the beauty of the city with different eyes.
This Tile Tour in Porto is perfect for tile lovers who wants to discover and learn about the most important buildings covered with tiles in the historic centre of Porto, classified as a world heritage site by UNESCO.
Part of the money raised with this tour is used to finance the project OS AZULEJOS DO PORTO, the only public catalogue of the facade tiles of Porto.
Thanks to the numerous tile factories that existed in the area we can find churches, train stations, shops and residential buildings covered with beautiful tiles.
During 3 hours you will learn about the history of these tiles, the artists who painted them and the techniques that were used to create this unique heritage, while finding the most emblematic examples.
From Monday to Saturday at 10am or 2pm.
