Photo Essay: Wall art in Portugal

I recently gave you a glimpse of the beautiful glass that I’ve found in Porto. Now it’s time to shine the spotlight on the variety of wall art you can find as you travel around Portugal.

It’s not all about painted walls either. Without even featuring the traditional azulejos (painted tiles) of Portugal,  I’ve still found some varied and creative use of ceramics. Old furniture doesn’t go to waste in this country, as you’ll see from the wooden wall art, and in some cases, you even get the chance to contribute the the art on display.
