This is one kind of art and craftsmanship the Portuguese lead the world.
It is out of the city centre and poorly signposted - but the bus drivers were helpful - a really wonderful Portuguese trait. Taxi is another way to get there.
Superb collection in a former nunnery - complete with a marvelous gilt and tile chapel. Fairly quiet when we were there, so it is relaxing. Lovely courtyard cafe, too.
Get out of the crowds, and see some real Portugal.
