The Azulejo ceramic tiles are hand painted tiles used for decoration in homes, large buildings and streets, as it has been a way of Portuguese tradition for a long time in history. These stunning mosaics differ in intricate designs and are still embraced today in Porto the way they were in the past.
Porto is actually a known landmark in the country for these fantastic tiles and you’ll notice them all over the city once you keep your eye out for them! Catch sights of these symbols of culture at major attractions including the Sao Bento station, Igreja de Santo Ildefonso and Igreja do Carmo. Your local host can explain the significance and symbols embedded in some of these designs.
