MM 208: A Tiled House in Gaia

We walked around Gaia one day during our three-day stay in Porto last year and came across this house whose walls were completely covered with tiles. This will be my entry for Leanne’s Monochrome Madness Challenge this week.

A house in Gaia covered with ceramic tiles (azulejos) of different colors and designs.

Vila Nova de Gaia is directly across the Douro River from Porto. The city is famous for its port wine cellars and tasting rooms. There are many cafes and restaurants along Cais de Gaia, the scenic riverside road directly opposite Porto’s Ribeira district.

Australian photographer Leanne Cole hosts the weekly Monochrome Madness Challenge. Visit her website on Wednesdays (Tuesdays in North America and Europe) to see what Leanne and other photographers from all over the world are doing in monochrome these days.
