This is a beautiful little detail. It reminds me of some of the small details I would see on houses in Italy.

Beautiful indeed! I'm always fascinated by the blue tiles/images that one finds in Portugal and wonder where/how they all originated! Terrific capture!!

Neat, colorful and in perfect shape!

@Sylvia: The Moors brought African tiles with them when they invaded Iberia. We learned from them.

Clean, crisp, and well cared for.

I would like to see how those tiles are made and then cut. Very impressive and a very fine exterior decoration. Esp. if you like Saint Anthony.

Je reconnais bien là, les catelles bleues de Lisbonne. Celles, magnifiques que l'on peut voir au musée.
