(just the tiles + facades)

because these tiled (and not tiled) facades deserve their own post

(ok, and because I clearly took way too many photos of them)

It’s not difficult to find tiles in Portugal. I mean, you can’t even walk down a street without spotting some cutie facades covered in colorful tiles. 

But then there are also tile *destinations* throughout the city. Like the train station. Where tiles are the medium of choice to bring stories and histories to life.

Then, of course, there are the churches. 

tbh there were so many pretty tiled buildings i lost track of what they all were…

Can you tell I was obsessed with the light/shadow play?
