Azulejos em Lisboa

Tiles in Lisbon

In almost every major city, you can find incredible artwork tucked away in museums and cathedrals, but in Lisbon, the artwork is on display for all to see. Just take a stroll through the city and you’ll find colorful tiles, or azulejos, on façades of apartments, storefronts, and even on the walls in the metro. From vibrant geometrical patterns to massive wall murals, each tile tells a story spanning over five centuries of Portugal’s history.
