Explore Glazed Tiles, Grease, and more!

The Amazing Glazed Tiles Ceiling in one of my favourite Lisbon hidden gems. The convent kitchens ceilings were covered in glazed tiles for hygiene and cleaning purposes. That way, the grease and humidity wouldn't sediment and you wouldn't risk your plate getting "extra and unwanted" flavours. :-) #glazedtiles #azulejos #architecture #history #hiddengems #lisbonconvents #lisbon #lisbontailoredtours #lisbonwithpats

Storytelling through glazed tiles (azulejos). Augustinian monks, priests and martyrs are the protagonists of these tile murals, especially in their East and West missions in Asia. Some of the characters are unable to look at us, as their eyes were erased, presumably by soldiers, after the extinction of the religious orders in 1834. #17thcenturytiles #tilemurals #missionaries #azulejos #storytellingthroughazulejos #lisbon #lisbonconvents #lisbontailoredtours #lisbonwithpats

Tile (or Azulejo) Pattern.  Azulejo comes from the Arab word azzelj or al zuleycha, which means "small polished stone" referring to a ceramic piece, usually squared, with one size glazed. The Portuguese perfected the art and you can find "azulejos" almost anywhere: surfaces, façades, walls, mural, and table tops, just to name a few. :-) #azulejos #patternedtiles #tilefacade #patterns #lisbon #lisbontailoredtours #lisbonwithpats

The Art of Storytelling through Glazed Tiles (or Azulejos in Portuguese). The use of azulejos in Portugal always had a major importance for insulation reasons, as well as decorative, but mainly to keep one's spirit entertained and informed (an early way of edutainment). With a big percentage of illiteracy and no TV, what better way to tell stories? 😄 But why the use of blue and white tones only? Simplicity, mainly. #storytellingthroughazulejos #lisbontailoredtours #lisbonwithpats
