About Us

We are a small company dedicated to the production of genuine Portuguese and handmade terracotta tile, preserving the manufacturing process of the ancient craftsmen.

The company “Terracotta do Algarve” was created more than 20 years ago, so it already has great experience with Terracotta, respecting the essence of its main raw material, the clay.

We are based in São Brás de Alportel, in the heart of the eastern Algarve, which includes some of the finest clay of the region. Our products are made with a mixture of these clays extracted from secular clay pits, thus achieving a warm atmosphere that inspires natural environments.

This is where we produce the known “Santa Catarina tile”, the “Tijolo Burro” brick, the ”Santa Catarina” roof tile, and other flooring and coverings, manual and traditional terracotta pottery.

We also have a wide range of glazed tiles and cement tiles, as well as several products for cleaning and care of terracotta, which allows numerous solutions to suit the specific needs of each client. We also offer many decorative products and materials in ceramics, stone and iron, ideal for your home, deck or garden.

We have experienced professionals for the placement and treatment of terracotta floors, as well as the creation of rustic terracotta decorations.

See our catalogue and price table available on the site. If you are interested in our products feel free to  ask us for a quote, application tips, or more detailed information, or visit us without any engagement.

We are at your disposal for any clarification.

Why Handmade Terracotta?


Terracotta manual tile is made with a single material: clay, as a natural raw product has great medicinal and ecological properties. For millennia the food has been cooked and served in clay.


The terracotta tile can be applied anywhere in the home or business facilities, as well as for walls, ceilings, countertops, pillars, what your imagination and creativity demand.


There are a variety of sizes. It may even be possible to make a different format in order to get a completely original pavement, for each client.


Due to the manufacturing process and to the baking process, completely handcrafted, the tiles have slight variations of shades, giving you a very pleasant effect in any floor or any other use.
