Azulejos

The tiles of Portugal are rich in patterns. They give a similar pleasure that textiles and quilts give through repetition and the variation. Here are some photos from a recent trip.

Hop on the carriage to see some tiles!

Most of these pictures were taken at the Museo Nacional Do Azulejo (tile museum) in Lisbon, or on the streets of Lisbon and Porto. I hope these pictures inspire you to pick up your brush or needle.
