I don't think the floor tiles do justice to the lovely walls.

Now that's the Portugal I know! I really found the tiles interesting when I visited there. Whatever gave the builders/designers/architects the inspiration?


Thanks for visiting Norwich Daily Photo and leaving your comment. Come visit again. Enjoy a fantastic weekend!

@Joy: The portuguese were inspired by the moorish tile art who actually lived in the southern Iberian Peninsula before having been expelled in the 12th century.

Fabulous details! I love Azulejos, they are so pretty!
As for flood here - it's probably last night with heavy rain, at least according to the weather forecast! Let's hope they are right!
