We're now away from Porto, in the "serra da estrela" (mountain of the star), but I thought I could not go on without showing you some famous azulejos.
Coming from a specific Portugese craft that was improved by the Moors at the time they ruled the place, azulejos can be found almost everywhere, and especially in churches. Some of them are absolutely gorgeous, and since they're one the the most famous trademarks of the country, they're a must !!! It's also the occasion for me to show you Porto's cathedral inside and outside (the first four pictures : the cloister and then the outside) ... Quite stunning. And two other churches (two last pictures).
I wish you an artistic day ;o)
