LISBON: Where even the Pavements are Tiled with Mosaic

Mosaic Pavements in Downtown Lisbon.

When I think of what Portugal is famous for I think of four things : Port wine, cork trees, sardines, and tiles.

(If anyone Portugese is reading this, I apologise if I’ve missed out anything equally important. I’m sure its famous for football teams and players as well as many other things, but I don’t do sport and nothing else is coming to mind.  But I can say “I LOVE YOUR COUNTRY!”).  Oh, there’s also sunshine, wonderful sightseeing, history, castles, delicious food, sandy beaches, rocky coastal scenery, friendly people ………….there is quite a lot more than I’d originally thought ).

Everywhere you look in Lisbon you see tiles. On old buildings, new buildings, walls, bridges, underpasses: in fact any flat surface which can be tiled very often is.

For this week’s WHICH WAY PHOTO CHALLENGE I’m focusing on the beautiful tiled mosaic pavements in Downtown Lisbon.
