The Museum of Açude offers the richest collections of Portuguese tile panels in Brazil.
The tiles are spread throughout the house and can be found not only inside the residence, but the balconies, the fountains, the garden benches, tables and even the old pool.
The importance of the collection of tiles is given by its stylistic variety and the representativeness of the origin of the parts, which are from European palaces such as the Quinta Real Beach, where lived D.João V.
A complete view of this fountain you can see in the workshop.

A fabulous set of "Azolejos", stunning art in blue.
An adorable art work mounted tiles.
I took the liberty to add this to my "Azulejos theme".
Buen fim de semana,

Very striking colors, and a beautiful level of detail in these fine tiles. To be honest, I think this is the first time I have seen tiles used in a fountain like this, and its a wonderful creation, and image
All the best

Another absolutely eye catching capture of this small piece of art! Beautifully presented and composed. Perfectly executed sharpness and DOF make the view really attractive. TFS. Like it!
