What a beautiful rich shade of burnt orange! It goes well with the tilework.

What a beautiful baptismal font! It certainly has a longggg history and many babies have been splashed with the baptismal water there!

Another great image, well framed and perfectly lighted. The azulejo of St John the Baptist is fantastic: I love this form of art so unique and beautiful.

Beautiful tile art of the walls...so elegant.

Quite an ornate font. Artistically done. Just one caveat: Don't ever drink from a baptism font no matter how thirsty you are!

JM!

I like the contrast in colors here.

The warm oranges on the floor and the base of the wall look amazing against the blue and white tiles!

Lovely!
