“Gorgeous Art Nouveau Tile”
Review of Museo del Azulejo

This museum isn't for everyone, but, if you appreciate the decorative arts, you will most likely enjoy your visit. I love the art nouveau style and the museum has a lovely collection of tiles from this era. You will probably have to ring the buzzer at the front door and wait for the someone at the front desk to let you in. With five floors to explore, the collection is surprisingly large for such an unassuming museum.

A small door puts you inside a historical time line of ceramic tiles, from XVII to XX centuries.
It is in downtown and you will spend about one hour to visit the museum.
Also, you can take pictures from tiles, wich for artists and architeture students, are a good reference source.
Some tiles lacks of deep research and information.
But it is an interesting place to visit.
