It underwent renovations and became the headquarters of the Tile Museum in the 1980s. The monument chapel is majestic, gilded carving, paintings, tiles, imaginary of various styles. Eclectic and harmonious set, worth the visit. On site there is a well decorated bar and restaurant. I recommend it to art and architecture connoisseurs.

One of the most beautiful churches in Portugal, all cooked in gold The most beautiful and remarkable of the monuments, or buildings that the Queen ordered were built, and where it rests, the convent of the Madre de Deus, in the Gothic Manueline style, houses today the National Museum of Azulejo, constituting one of the richest cultural heritage Portuguese. He told him to be buried. It was built in 1509, and since then it has always been integrated into the House of Queens. He was occupied by Clarissas, Franciscanas barefoot from the first rule of St. Clare, to which the Queen herself, as a widow, made a vow, and wanted to obey. The Majestic convent of the Madre de Deus was subjected to magnificent architectural interventions and luxurious decoration over the centuries, having possessed an exceptional heritage in goldsmiths and works of art. From the time of its foundation, there is mainly the ground floor, notable for its Claustrim, and the so-called Chapel of D. Leonor. And, surviving the earthquake of 1755, abroad there is also the façade, ornamented with beautiful portals and windows in pure Manueline style, which used to give directly to the sands of the beach of Xabregas, over the Tagus. Queen Leonor passed away in her palace of Xabregas, on the outskirts of Lisbon, next to the convent of the same name. Right there, in Xabregas, he wanted to be buried, in his magnificent convent of the Madre de Deus, in a shallow grave of cold and bare stone, in a place of passage, so that all would tread. Gestures of great humility that he moved, and that he wanted to demonstrate to the coming, that they would pass through, the sign of the smallness of the things of the world in the face of eternity.
