This is inspirational photo #47 of our archiTEXTure Challenge:

This photo shows a row of Azulejos, handcrafted painted and glazed ceramic tiles. On the Iberian Peninsula, they are a legacy of the Moors, who dominated large parts of Spain and Portugal from the 8th century. These weatherproof tiles are used on public monuments and buildings, house façades and churches, but also on interior walls to create artistic murals.
