This was a surprise as we walked from the town hall. A lovely pictorial scenes in blue tiles, Azulegos. It really does add to the beauty of this area of the town.

A nice surprise on the main praça in Viseu: the panels depicting various scenes in gorgeous azulejos, the blue and white tiles of Portugal. Lots of rich detail--only drawback is you can't stand close to them without standing in traffic. Come at a quiet time...More

In searching for a place for dinner we came upon this gem. It is mesmerising to look at and the surrounding greenery sets it off.

When in Viseu you must walk in the main square and the old town narrow streets. In the main square you should not miss the beautiful tile panel (“painel de azulejos”).

Of course - just tiles. But these tiles are beautiful and worth seeing them. No matter if there are more in Lisbon or Porto ;)

You can admire it without any cost. It is a beatiful example of the Azulejo that you can find all over Portugal
