Lisbon enchants for their panels of tiles.
They can be simple or huge panels that tell stories of history or stories of simple people.
Today the tile won preponderance among artists. There are many panels of tiles that cover the walls, viaducts and underground stations.
Artists like Vieira da Silva, Júlio Pomar, among many others, left for posterity panels of tiles, fabulous, throughout Lisbon.

Un balade magnifique dans Lisbonne avec comme fil rouge les azulejos. J'avoue que je découvre avec bonheur le métro qui a évolué depuis 1984 :))

that is one of the things that stands out in my mind of my trip to Portugal, so many of the buildings have beautiful tiles on the outside walls, which is something you very rarely see in the UK...

My passion comes through Lisbon in 1974, July 3, the day I first stepped on this ground. I arrived by 5am on a TAP flight between Beira in Mozambique to Lisbon.
My cousins​​, I did not know them personally, they decided to take me around 6 am strolling around the Baixa and the Carmo.
The city smelled of coffee with hot milk. I never forgot. Lisbon has for me the smell of coffee with hot milk!
A hug Antonio.
