Located in the Tijuca Forest, the Museum of Açude works in the former winter home of the industrialist and patron Raymundo Castro Maya (1894-1968). It is a neoclassical building that was renovated by its owner in neocolonial building, in the 20s.
The Museum offers the richest collections of Portuguese tile panels in Brazil. More than twenty panels decorated with Portuguese tiles in baroque, rococo and neoclassical styles brought from the cities Lisboa, Maranhão and Salvador.

I am a fan of colorful tiles! These ones are superb beautiful and together build a lovely image. Excellent presentation taken with a good cropping, clarity and color management. Hope to see more pics in your gallery from this series! :)

They have these decorated public water fountains in Spain & Portugal too! Good warm cold color combination of gold and blue with superb sharpness & effective tight framing. Excellent textural details in the stone. Tfs and have a great week!

Este painel está excelente, não só pelo desenho, mas também pelas cores. Até o pato da torneira está óptimo! Bonito detalhe!
