Let’s have a little art history lesson. You might be wondering about my blue tile obsession in Portugal, well here’s the skinny. Azulejos date as far back as the 13th century, when the Moors invaded the land that now belongs to Spain and Portugal, but they secured their foothold in Portuguese culture between the 16th and 17th centuries. The word azulejo stems from Arabic roots, meaning ‘small polished stone’. Glazed blue ceramic tiles are everywhere in Portugal. They decorate the winding streets of the capital, Lisbon. They cover the walls of train stations, restaurants, bars, public murals, and fountains, churches, and altar fronts. This beautiful couple had Azulejos incorporated in their entire day!
