Azulejos, as ceramic tiles are called in Portugal, are not a portuguese invention. The use of glazed tiles begin in Egypt, but Portugal adopted them so dearly that today this country has the most beautiful examples of hand painted ceramic tiles in the world!
The most iconic and beautiful architecture in Portugal is almost sure to have azulejos in it. They decorate everything from walls of churches and monasteries, to palaces, ordinary houses, park seats, fountains, shops, and railway stations. They often portray scenes from the history of the country, show its most ravishing sights, or simply serve as street signs, nameplates, or house numbers.
