The Art of the Azulejo

The term azulejo refers to a glazed terracotta tile that features prominently in the architectural traditions of Spain and Portugal. The word comes from the Arabic term for “little polished stone,” and the tiles first appeared in Spain during the 13th century. In addition to the Pilates House, you can see beautiful examples of this art form at the Alcázar of Seville and the Alhambra in Granada.
