The old convent

The Museu Nacional do Azulejo (more affectionately known as Lisbon鈥檚 Tile Museum) was created in 1965 as an integral part of the Museum of Ancient Arts and acquired its present name in 1980. The museum occupies the impressive buildings of the royal Convent de Madre de Deus, founded in 1509 by Eleanor of Viseu (1458-1525), one of Portugal鈥檚 most influential queen consorts, universally known as Rainha Dona Leonor. The old convent is located in Xabregas, a neighbourhood in eastern Lisbon, and houses one of Portugal's most extensive collections of tiles.

Leonidas Argyros

A grumpy man with a PhD. He is fascinated by words; when he sees them forming beautiful sentences he feels like an apprentice wizard who just produced fancy potions out of cauldrons full of frog legs and tears of bats. In his spare time he roams about town or watches anything produced and narrated by Sir David Attenborough, an inexhaustible source of similes. In Canada, he learned to love the cold, but he is much happier working in Athens.
