If you know Portugal, then you likely know about azulejos (the beautiful blue tiles covering half of its walls). And you also likely know Santo António, the coiuntry’s most celebrated saint. And, while the annual festival celebrating the latter has been on hold for two years in a row now due to you know what, the Museum of Lisbon invites you to get a little more familiar with the legacy of the patron saint of lost items. In azulejo form. Here’s what they say:
“This exhibition presents a set of tile panels dating from the 18th century, from the transition from Baroque to Rococo, representing episodes or miracles of Saint Anthony. These are scenes that are widespread in numerous chapels and churches dedicated to St. Anthony, which in Italy and Spain are represented in mural paintings, and in Portugal and Brazil by tile panels.”
ENTRY: 3€ (includes museum ticket).
Museum hours: Tue-Sun, 10h-18h (closed Mondays).
