Azulejos in Portugal

Blue is the theme for the challenge this week for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – CFFC. What came to mind are the blue and white Azulejo tiles which are a Portuguese classic. Azulejos are beautiful ceramic tiles from the 14th century that decorate the streets, churches and buildings throughout Portugal.
