I think this kind of tile work on buildings is a grand idea. I can imagine how much more beautiful life would be if there were more buildings like this one.

Much more ornate than the art nouveau I am used to ... but I have come to expect beautifully ornate from Portugal.

Verry pretty. It looks like a wall frieze fund in Victorian homes.

This sculpture and painting are both very fine design.
And both are beautiful.

I love Portugal.

Bem-vindo ao Extremo Oriente, algures.
Obrigado.
