A once magnificently grand entrance.

A lot of exquisite artistry here. I wonder how they did that with the tiles? It's an old building, too, from the looks of the door and the stone. Very beautiful, though.

We have enjoyed the azuelos on our two visits to Spain and one brief visit to Lisbon. Each is different, all of them are elegant.

Ditto all above JM, if this is in your 'decay' series, it's the pretties decay ever. Love the little touches of yellow still showing in the tile work to the right.

Worn and wonderful! Is there any way to restore broken azulejos?

Takes my breath away. There is probably a fabulous story behind that.

This is one of the many reasons I need to visit Portugal!
