These are tiles, J.E.

Kate said...

JM, I'd love to see even more shots of this building. Tiles are artistic with so many possibilities because of there versatility.

Tanya said...

The roof and window detail alone are stunning. Add in the architecture style and the tile work and you've got a real beauty. You've framed this beautifully.

What a gorgeous place. I was wondering if it was tiles or paint but, I see it's tiles. Wonderful work.

Jacob said...

Let's peep some more!
Are they still making tiles in your area?and decorating buildings?

Vivid colours, as always.

They'd better not break any windows with tennis balls. The life of a window in Estoril might be adventurous.
