A historic maritime city, welcoming modern explorers
Europe’s westernmost capital is probably also its most stunningly sited, on hilly ground in a bend of the River Tagus where it broadens out into a giant bay. Writers rave about Lisbon’s unique light; modern tourists also warm to the mild climate and relaxed feel of its summer nights, when the bars' patrons spill out onto cobbled streets. Centuries of maritime exploration have also left a rich artistic heritage.
Beautiful handmade Portuguese tiles
Sant' Anna is a historic Portuguese tile shop that has been producing handmade tiles since 1741. These tiles have been used in public and private buildings throughout the world. The shop also makes and sells painted ceramic bowls, lamps, jars, candlesticks, and figurines.
Sant' Anna has a factory located just outside of Lisbon in the Belem district. Factory tours are available for small groups by appointment. Visitors can see the entire process of creating the tiles, from the kiln to the glazing to the painting.
