Alicioustravels: The Azulejos of Portugal

Much had I heard of the famous azulejos of Portugal, still they merely sounded like colourful tiles to me. And actually, that’s exactly what they are. Minus the “merely”.However, the beauty of their composition on random house walls was instantly intriguing and kept mesmerizing me for the whole two weeks of our trip last September.

Like so often, pictures tell it best.

Therefore, enjoy the photos of my favourite azulejos I came across.

What do you think? Aren’t they lovely? i felt that the abundance of colour gave so much life and character to each building – even and especially to the old and tattered ones.
