Back from Portugal, a few pictures
Just a quick post to share a few pictures from my recent trip to Vinho Verde country and the Setubal peninsula.
Quinta de Azvedo, Sogrape's beautiful property in Vinho Verde.
Tiles at Bacalhoa, Azeitao (Terras do Sado). Bacalhoa has some amazing tiles dating from the 15th and 16th centuries. The majolica tiles above are the earliest examples of tiles made using this technique (which made it possible to paint directly onto the tiles) in Portugal.
