Azulejos -- glazed ceramic tiles – are one of the most emblematic art expressions of Portuguese culture. During the 13th century, ceramic decoration arrived in the Iberian Peninsula by the hand of the Arabs. In Portugal, azulejos became a singularity as a decorative and architectural element and adjusted, in the course of time, to the history and realities of the country. Thus, Portuguese urban landscape is dressed by dazzling and precious blue and white tiles portraying social, political, military and biblical scenes.
