HISTORY PAINTED ON THE WALLS OF QUINTA DO TORNEIRO
UNIQUE AND EXCLUSIVE PORTUGUESE TILES
At Quinta do Torneiro in Lisbon, it's no different. The Portuguese tiles decorate the halls and tell the story of the Quinta. The Noble Room of Quinta do Torneiro is the only room where the tiles are green. They match the color of the ceiling and the doors, and tell a little bit of the story of the arrival of the Portuguese in Brazil.
In the Crest Room, the Portuguese tiles tell the story of the daily life at Quinta do Torneiro. Built in 1784, Quinta do Torneiro belonged to the Portuguese Court and was therefore a building of great historical importance. The portrait of the conviviality of the peasants and the dances in the garden are unforgettable!
The tradition of the Portuguese tiles was an Arabian cultural influence even though the first Portuguese tile factory was established in Lisbon in the 18th century. Before that, the tiles were imported from Seville. The tiles tell the life of the Portuguese in images and were considered a means of social distinction.
Today, Portugal is considered the world capital of tiles! It is a true open-air museum of Portuguese tiles. Walking through the cities you find numerous versions in houses, churches and public buildings.
In the traditional tiles of the 18th century, the horses assume great prominence, being often painted with adornments, with great detail and exaggerated proportions, for their bearing was also a symbol of power and nobility.
