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

  • I visited the Museum of Tiles super excited, but going in there I thought boring. Are just two small rooms with few copies of Portuguese tiles.

  • 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. ***

  • 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.
