The video and photographs take you on a visit to the José Maria da Fonseca Winery in the town of Azeitão. Then we go to the Azulejos de Azeitao tile factory, where they produce hand-painted tiles. This was day three of our “Undiscovered Portugal – Lisbon to the Algarve” touring holiday organised by Titan Travel.

José Maria da Fonseca – A 19th Century Manor House
When you visit the house where José Maria da Fonseca was founded in 1834, you’ll get to know the essence of a Wine Family with almost 200 years of history, where the values passed down from generation to generation are kept alive while allowing the company to project itself into the 21st century.
Built in the nineteenth century, the house was restored in 1923 by the Swiss architect, Ernesto Korrodi, and was the Soares Franco family residence until the 1970s. With its particularly beautiful façade and gardens, it has always been associated with the image of José Maria da Fonseca.

Azulejos de Azeitão
Azulejos de Azeitão uses the European traditional methods of tile making, and reproduces antique designs from, not only European countries, but Islamic and Chinese. We make flat hand-painted tiles as well as relief tiles with different color glazes, in the style of Hispano-Moorish tiles of the 16th century.
