The selection on offer will be hard to beat. It is huge. Not just tiles but other ceramics and furniture as well. Sales lady is over enthusiastic which can be annoying. If it had not been for the huge selection, I would have left without...More

Enough tiles are stacked in souvenir and artisan shops to fill home improvement centers many times over. But if you stroll along Rua Dom Pedro V toward the Jardim Botânico, you will pass Solar. Besides antiques, they sell salvaged building tiles, centuries old and FAR...More

Huge selection of antique ceramic tiles from 16th-19th Centuries. Authentic and colorful tiles. Somewhat pricey but probably the largest collection of Portuguese azulejos in the world. For contemporary tiles and ceramics, visit Sant'Anna at r. Do Alecrim 95, Lisbon.
