Ronda looks like an amazing place - your photo of it is great! I've never been to Portugal before, but if I ever get there I'll try to remember Ronda thanks to your picture. Wow! Oh and of all the tiles I think the 'crumblies are my favourites. x

f:lux:it is a tourist picture-it's difficult to get that shot from where we were. Definitely a place to visit.

The tiles are all lovely; I like the ones you think look Portuguese, and I agree. We have some Delft tiles bought by my brother-in-law in HOlland. I love them.

I love that one from Spain of the woman holding the basket of fruit...lovely muted colors...In fact ALL the tiles are beautiful, even the "crumbly" ones, Pat....And Ronda looks very interesting....

Judy: one of my old friends - George had a fireplace made of delft tiles. I coveted it.

Naomi; they seem to use tiles in a much more decorative way out there. My sister's house in Portugal had a barbecue area beautifully tiled and they are so practical. I have been three times to Ronda and the view always thrills me.

Crumbly and cracked? They look good for a good few years yet :)
