While walking Portuguese streets, you see houses, churches, palaces covered with the ceramic tileworks, which are called azulejos. They differ in colours and patterns, bringing new aspects of Portuguese history and culture to tourists from all over the world.
Azulejos appeared in the 13th century to imitate Roman mosaic. According to some sources, Azulejos were brought from Spain and might have Arabic origin.
Azulejos is a piece of art, every building is decorated in an individual manner.
