LISBOA - Graça - Praça do Comércio - Almada - Metro








Arriving in Lisbon, staying in the old city center, walking in between Azulejos buildings, crossing to almada and discovering that even the subway is full of ceramics tiles.











Graça - Near by Largo de Graça -







Baixa - 
"Sobre a murder forte da verdade o manto diáfano da fhantasia" Eça de Queiroz
Faianças & Azulejos -
Praça do Comércio - Terreiro do Paço - MUDE Museu do Design e da Moda -
L'impressionant arc de triomphe (XIXe s.) ouvre la Baixa sur la Tage. Bordée d'édifices classiques et d'arcades, noble, sévère et élégante à la fois, la place symbolise la nouvelle Lisbonne de Pombal. 
Almada - Crossing to Almada by boat you arrive in a really cute place, with fish restaurants & El Ponte Finale..
Going back more Azulejos !

Metro - Some stations of Lisbon underground are full of Azulejos.. 
Keil do Amaral, the architect who designed the subway in the late 1950s, was dismayed that there were no funds budgeted to cover the bleak cement walls. His wife, the painter Maria Keil, suggested the use of inexpensive tiles and offered to design them for free. Keil filled the subway with elegant modernist tiles that brought the art of tile making into the 20th century.
Maria Keil mural - Maria Keil’s Fisherman -
Some of the most beautiful tiles in Lisbon decorate humble subway tunnels and ordinary streets like Infante Santo.  Maria Keil continued, throughout her life, to dress the walls of the city with tiles that make Lisbon feel young and pretty.
