Casa dos Azulejos Funchal Reviews
Some ancient and precious tiles Apr 14, 2007
This museum is covered by the same ticket as that for Casa-Museu Frederico de Freitas. This is the smaller of the two but it's the one that drew us. Funchal is a great place for tiles - even the Toyota showrooms have some beauties on their outside wall!
Here the tiles date from the 13th century to the early 20th and come from Turkey, Syria, Iran, the Netherlands and even England as well as Iberia. They are beautifully displayed over 3 floors
Like Casa-Museu Frederico de Freitas, this is on a very steep hill and the disadvantaged are advised to take a taxi.
