Seats and Tiles

by Armando June. 02, 2012 1494 views

The tiles are a Portuguese tradition.
There are panels that tell us stories of our history, many churches, palaces and monuments are filled with huge tiled panels.
On the streets of our cities and towns is traditional to use small panels of tiles with the names of streets, farms and private properties.
