We are fascinated by the beautiful Azulejos tiles which have been made and used to decorate the exterior and interior of buildings since the 15th century. The Moors brought this craft with them when they invaded Portugal. And the art form has evolved over the cneturies. There are lots of blue and white themes seen especially in churches. The traditon is contiuned to this day with contemporary artists designing new azulejos themes. Beautiful!!
