Azulejaria portuguesa by Maria Lucia Dornas

Azulejo Art on walls of Portuguese monasteries.


Porto, Portugal. The wall of Azulejo. The azulejo is a form of Portuguese painted, tin-glazed, ceramic tilework, that is a typical aspect of Portuguese culture.

Museu Nacional do Azulejo (Portugal). 'Housed in a meticulously restored Manueline convent, this out-of-the-way museum is an ode to the azulejo (tile), with its peerless collection of geometric Hispano-Moorish tiles, Renaissance hunting scenes and a standout baroque panel of pre-1755 Lisbon.'

I love the tiled or painted water fountains you see everywhere as you drive through Portugal. Fonte do Vassalo - Arronches, Alentejo, Portugal
