The Theme this week: Tiles
Todays Tile: Luis de Camoes was considered to be one of the Top Poets of the Portuguese nationality, so eloquently expressed through the modern epic poem "Os Lusíadas", Luís Vaz de Camões clearly had a life that was full of trials and tribulations, even though very little is actually known about it. He studied in Coimbra, was at Ceuta and fought in India, losing an eye in the meantime, and, after his return to Lisbon, he began to frequent the Royal Palace, although he lived in great difficulties, from a very meagre pension granted by the king, he never got to see his great merits recognised during his lifetime.
Luis de Camoes was born in 1525, and he died in 1580, after which his reputation as a great poet was firmly established and permanently continued to increase, especially after the loss of national independence, a feeling that had been intensified by his epic poems. He also worked within the theatre, but he was noted more than anything else for his lyrical poetry (Rimas), using a great variety of different genres: sonnets, songs, eclogues, roundels, etc… An amazing man.
V2 is a "Portuguese Caravela" also of tiles (Both shots in Portugal)

Azulejos - that' their names, a Moorish tradition, they are present from Tunisia to Portugal passing by Algeria , Marocco and Spain. In Porto and Lisbon are some entire walls covered with such azulejos ( azul in Spanish means light blue, azulejos is a diminutive from azul). Very nice

Excellent idea Isabel. Azulejos are beautiful.
Poor Camoes, he had a permanent wink dating from the time he lost an eye.

I always take pics of the tiles in Portugal and elsewhere. Fascinating.
V2 is more of an 'aye aye' picture.
Good title and images.
