I really like tiles, Andrew. If I ever became a collector of anything other than books, I think tiles might be it. My favorite was the modern one, sixth down. –Curt

Thanks Curt. The picture is a detail from El Caprichio, a house designed by Antoni Gaudi in the town of Comillas in Cantabria – https://anotherbagmoretravel.wordpress.com/2015/05/13/northern-spain-cantabrian-coast-comillas-and-gaudi/
Then I understand why I liked it. Gaudi is one of my favorite artists.
Aren’t they wonderful!
The really good thing is that there are tiles like this all over Spain and they never seem to be vandalised of graffitied
I love the bright colours of the Spanish tiles 🙂 I have got some Portuguese tiles on our garden water feature (got them from a specialist shop here in Perth). They are brilliant blue and white and look lovely in the garden!
Portugal is the place to go to see tiles. Have you ever been?
No haven’t got there yet! Again our younger daughter has been a couple of times. One of her London flatmates is Portuguese and has said we’re very welcome to stay at her parents place near Lisbon (they live abroad!) so we must try and get there at some point!
That is an offer you can’t refuse!
Yes very lucky to have a local contact and a place to stay! 🙂
Amazing efforts and creativity put into these – love the effect and wouldn’t mind tiling some of the surfaces in my house with these 🙂
Wonderful aren’t they! Kim takes pictures of the tiles while I concentrate on the doors.
You do have a skill for tempting us all. Just when I think I am at peace and content, you come up with something else for me to yearn after. Absolutely enchanting.
Probably wouldn’t work so well in Australia anyway John!
The man on the dromedary’s a little strange, Andrew. But then, who am I to talk? Safe and happy travels 🙂
It was a bar/restaurant sign. Maybe he had had one too many!
I love Spanish art. The tiles are gorgeous. ❤ ❤ ❤
Only the Spanish and the Portuguese can do this. Maybe Mexico? But I have never been to Mexico. Maybe Cuba? My son is in Cuba right now, I will ask him when he gets back.
They are one of the things we love Andalusia for! The tiles are never the same!
The tiles are wonderful all over Spain. Thanks for the comment.
Each is better than the other! Although the Moroccan flower style is my favourite:)
That is courtesy of Antoni Gaudi, one of his few buildings outside of Catalonia.
They’re very pretty.
Thank you John.
Such a wonderful collection you have displayed. The colourful tiles in Spain is something I can still remember from my travels there:)
The tiles are wonderful and always stay in the memory. Thanks for the comment.
I really, really like this trend of offering us more visuals lately! These are all very lovely!
Thanks Gunta. I prefer to do a word post but sometimes pictures tell the full story.
