Photographer's Note

No one knows for certain the reason why the windows and doors are painted BLUE. This is one of the mysteries still to solve, but the most recognized explanation is the isolation of the village and the arrival of a pail of blue paint.
Having no choice, the blue was imposed upon and is actually an integrant part of the architectonic ensemble for the village of Piódão.

As I told you in my last photo, Piódão is without doubt one of the most beautiful villages of Portugal. It is classified as a Public Interest Monument.
