Ceramics in Tomar

This gallery and artist workshop inside Convento de São Francisco is a lovely spot to pick up unique ceramics and azuleijos (hand-painted tiles), all made in-house by a gaggle of artistic ceramicists and painters whom you can watch at work on a visit. Our favourites are the ceramic matchboxes.

The sweet ladies, some of whom speak English or French, have been at it since the late 1980s.
