I wouldn't even care if the food was bad if I could sit and look at these beautiful walls.

I never cease to be in awe of the tile work in Portugal!! So beautiful and you always capture it perfectly! Seeing it "for real" when I was in Portugal years ago will always be one of my favorite memories! Hope your week is going well, JM!

One of the best lunches I have ever had was in surroundings like this at a restaurant on the Azores .

The tiles around Lisbon are simply amazing. Wonderful, JM.

Such elegance! It would be an experience to dine in such surroundings. The artists must have laid out their creations on another material and then transferred them to the individual tiles, yes? So intricate!

I didn't realize Portugal is an architecture lovers' dream destination. What a treat to eat there in a very charming surrounding.
