On Walkways

When you are walking through the streets of Lisbon, there are many sections of tile. The variety and creativity of the different designs is so stunning! While you are on the sidewalks, be sure to watch where you are going but also look down to check out the Portuguese street tiles.

One word of caution – the last photo in this section shows the tiles in the rain. They get slippery, so watch out!

On Streets

This may seem the least exciting, but even if a sidewalk or street doesn’t have a distinct design, the way that the stones are cut and placed is beautiful. Be sure to notice these when you are touring Portugal!
