Walking around the hills of the capital of Lisbon, you’d be blind not to notice the hundreds upon hundreds of buildings that are encased with tiles.
It’s one of the things that makes this part of the world unique from elsewhere.
The tile work has a history that dates back to the long-history of Moorish occupation of Spain and Portugal and is an artistic reminder of the ongoing influence from North Africa that continues through southern Spain and into Portugal.
The Museu do Azulejo, the tile museum, is located in Lisbon and provides an exhaustive history of this form of architectural art. But for me, I just preferred to just wander around town and take photograph upon photograph.
