Portugal is famous for its azulejos, decorative ceramic tiles, which can be seen in churches, buildings, houses and even some pubs and restaurants all across the country.
You will find this beautiful building full of azulejos, (Graa/Lisbon)not blue and white, but yellows and browns. Its a beautiful facade.
You'll see them everywhere in Lisbon: So called Azulejos, ceramic tiles used as facades of the houses or as interior decorations. Often they are composed mosaic-like to artistic wall-pictures. You'll see plenty of them just striving threw the city, but if you are intrested in this typical Portugese art, visit "Museo Nacional do Azulejo" . The Museu Nacional do Azulejo is a good place to visit if you have any interest in azulejos. There is an impressive collection of tiles dating from the 16th century, right up to the present day. One of the star exhibits is Portugals longest azure, a huge panorama of Lisbon more than 30 metres in length. The museum also explains the intricacies of how the tiles are produced.
