Tiles in Portugal

Tile related stuff from our vacation. Tiles are everywhere in Portugal and the largest tile museum in the world is in Lisbon. We used airline miles to get there and then the hotels were actually cheaper than anywhere in the USA. We did make a side trip to Barcelona and looked at some Guadi buildings that also used a lot of tile work.


1) Church in Evora, Portugal
2) Light well in a Gaudi designed apartment building
