Handcrafting Traditional Portuguese Tiles in Lisbon

There is tile everywhere you turn in Lisbon. It is part of the fabric of the city—an architectural and aesthetic feature covering houses, churches and train stations. Not surprisingly, the oldest working tile factory in Portugal is situated in the country’s famously tile-clad capital. Founded in 1741, the Sant’Anna factory has survived earthquakes, wars and fires. To this day, the company’s artisans still produce tile by hand using traditional techniques.

This Great Big Story was inspired by Genesis.
