Exquisite Portuguese azulejos (decorative tiles) are everywhere in Lisbon. You can find better concentrations of the tile in places like Mosteiro de São Vicente de Fora, but no place canvasses the history of these handpainted tiles like this museum in western Lisbon. The 16th-century convent itself is stunning; and the can't-miss collection, spanning from the Ottoman Empire to Goa, culminates in an astonishing 118-foot-long panel depicting pre-earthquake Lisbon.
