Postcard from Lisbon – Fully tiled fireplace – Cheminée entièrement carrelée

photo_246_tiled_fireplaceLike Spain, Portugal has a long tradition of azulejos or ceramic tiles. This fully tiled fireplace is in the Swan Room of the National Palace of Sintra built in the early 15th century, which is up on a hill outside Lisbon and therefore much cooler in winter.
Comme l’Espagne, le Portugal a une longue tradition de azulejos ou carreaux en céramique. Cette cheminée entièrement carrelée se trouve dans la salle des signes du palais national de Sintra construit au début du 15ème siècle sur une colline en dehors de Lisbonne ; il y fait donc plus froid en hiver.
