Introduced by the Moors, 'Azulejos' (originally white and blue ceramic tiles) were fully embraced by the Portugese, when their king Manuel I, on a visit to the Alhambra palace in southern Spain, was mesmerised by the stunning beauty of the Moorish decorative tiles. The king, awestruck by the interior beauty of the Alhambra, immediately ordered that his own palace in Portugal be decorated with similar wall tiles.
