I love tiles. Always have. Loved them long before I stepped in Lisbon. So you could imagine my glee at finding so many of them in Lisbon. As we toured the city via the HOHO bus, I had my sights on the beautiful building facades decorated with tiles of exquisite designs. I wish I had time to visit the tile museum so that I could learn more about them.
