Aldeia da Terra

Art Studio in Évora

The artist Tiago Cabeça has created this wondrous miniature world of Portugal moulded in clay and peopled with humorous and irreverent characters. You'll find recognisable Alentejo imagery – castles, painted-white villages, cathedrals – and the interiors of tiny houses and lanes where Cabeça's characters are captured in all their adorable, big-eyed whimsy.

Cabeça is often on hand, and is happy to explain the vision behind his eye-catching creations. You can also purchase some of his works.
