go anywhere in portugal and you will see the colourful and riotous patterns of the azulejo which adorns lisbon's buildings. azulejo is a form of  tin-glazed ceramic tilework, and not only are they are beautiful but they are cool to touch, so perfect for the hot weather.  easily cleaned, they give the buildings a colour gloss and sheen even in the city's dirtiest parts.  i was hooked on them but it was these simple ones that stole my heart.
