Quinta de Quetzal

Vidigueira - Portugal
December 27, 2016

It is in Quinta de Quetzal, Vila de Frades, in the heart of  the Alentejo region, that we can find a large tile panel, produced at Aleluia Cerâmicas, S.A., in its Sintra unit, the Viúva Lamego Ceramic Factory.

At the entrance to the room where the restaurant is located we immediately fix our eyes on this large panel composed of 915 tiles, with an area of 17.94 square meters. It portrays a colourful drawing of a Quetzal, the bird that gives the name to the Quinta and also to some of their wines.

Produced in the Sintra unit of Aleluia Cerâmicas, S.A. this panel is inspired on an illustration by the exceptional artist Henriette Arcelin, who has been working with Viúva Lamego in several art works. This large panel is the restaurant’s business card, having a great prominence in one of its walls.
