Azulejos

 

Typical of Portugal, the ceramic tiles (azulejos) are omnipresent in and on many buildings. There are azulejos protection groups, as many were stolen off buildings to be sold on markets, mostly to tourists, at high prices.

 

While they come in many colours, blue is very predominant.

 

Typiques du Portugal, les carreaux de faïence (azulejos) sont omniprésents sur et dans de nombreux bâtiments. Il existe des groupes de protection des azulejos car de nombreux vols ont eu lieu (des pans entiers de vieux bâtiments manquent), les carreaux étant vendus aux touristes sur les marchés à prix d’or.

Bien que le choix de couleurs soit large, le bleu domine nettement.
