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
