The history of the azulejo tile in Portugal from the late 15th century to the present day is told in the former Madre Deus convent that was founded in 1509 by Queen Leonor. The convent was always received special attention from the Portuguese royal family and underwent several renovations over the centuries. Thanks to the interventions in the 17th and 18th centuries, the convent church, originally from 1550, is recognised as one of the foremost examples of the Baroque decorative style in Portugal.
