Azulejos de Bilbao

12.12.18 

It’s no secret that Spain is host to many beautiful tiles. When I started off on a trip across the country earlier this year, “azulejos” (“tiles”) was one of the first new words I was set on learning (and it took a while!), knowing I’d be talking about them plenty. It was really interesting seeing how certain themes and designs were unique to a specific place, and how others carried-on across regions (some designs and color palettes I even remember seeing in Cuba 3 years prior). Here’s a little collection of beautiful tiles spotted around Bilbao adorning walls, floors, bars, bathrooms and parks alike.
