  • Small museum with a small collection of tiles too but a little of the history of tiles of Cologne
    View original
  • Has, reportedly in the documents, more than 500 types of tiles (Portuguese, French, Catalans and Uruguayans), all from the 19th century. Stay in a Portuguese construction of the years 1740-1760, retired in 1986. Visit is quick and if you have little time to stay in the city, there are other museums and interesting places.

  • Very interesting, but too small. The service is amazing! The tiles are very beautiful and reveal a little of the time of colonization.

  • Museo del Azulejo. Amazing 17th Century building.If you are interested in the materials used in this town’s amazing building, then this museum might be more meaningful for that rather than what’s housed inside. This stone house is still standing after centuries. Built in the last of 17th century.However, inside there is a small display of beautifully designed tiles displayed on boards but with little or no explanation. Even though we knew some of the tiles were the oldest in Uruguay we were less than impressed. In and out in under 10 minutes. ***
  • Interessante porém pequena. Vale a visita histórica, mas é uma passadinha...
  • The Museum is small, the construction can be seen. The entry goes $50/USD2. Does not carry more than 30 min see it. It closed in the early afternoon.

  • A beauty! To lose hours with everything there is to see and discover. Full of history and magic to be fascinated with the work of those times when everything was "a lung". Places more musts in Cologne.
