Azulejo tiles in Porto

Portugal’s King Manuel I brought the idea of azulejo to Portugal after his visit to Seville.  These tiles were used to cover up the large areas of blank walls.

It started as a simple geometric design before evolving into elaborate designs.

From outside walls to inside buildings and churches you can find azulejo tiles in many places in Porto

...even in train stations

Built on the former site of a Benedictine monastery, the São Bento Railway Station is one of the best places to see blue azulejo tiles in Porto.
