Patterned tiles, produced in the mid-to-late 1800s, cover thousands of buildings in Lisbon.
The variety of colors and designs on the streets of the Portuguese capital is part of the city’s identity, and there’s always at least one small panel on every corner.
The most striking examples are inside the palaces and churches, but there are also true works of art on the façades.
