Situated close to the Clergymen Tower and Church (Igreja e Torre dos Clérigos), the Igreja do Carmo é remarkable construction, presenting an amazing panel of tiles on an exterior wall, representing scenes describing the foundation of the Carmelite Order. To its side this wall azulejos, were designed by Silvestre Silvestri and painted by Carlos Branco. The tiles were produced in a tiles factory in Gaia, suburb of Porto, and mounted on the church's façade in 1912.
The Igreja de Santo Ildefonso is an 18th-century church in Porto, Portugal, situated near Batalha Square. Completed in 1739, the church was built in a proto-Baroque style and features a façade of azulejo tilework created by the artist Jorge Colaço and placed in November 1932

  • Fonte dos Leões/Fountain of Lions
    Praça de Gomes Teixeira
    The Fonte dos Leões (Fountain of Lions) is a monumental fountain 8 metres wide and 6 metres tall, integrated in the water supply system of Porto during the 1880s.
    It was awarded to the french company Compagnie Générale des Eaux pour l'Etranger”, also responsible for the construction of this public equipment.
    Approved in 1885, it came into operation from the next year on.
    The fountain, besides decorating the Praça dos Voluntários da Rainha(Voluntários da Rainha Square), provided the required ventilation and oxygenation of the water, and provided relief to pipes under pressure.
  • Transcript of "Iconic blue and white ceramic tiles "

    1. 1. http://www.authorstream.com/Presentation/sandamichaela-1986984-porto10/
    2. 2. Aeroporto The city of Porto is one of the most visited cities in Europe, hosting more than a million tourists a year. It is the second largest city in Portugal, known worldwide for its wine, its bridges and its historical center, classified as World Heritage by UNESCO. The inauguration of the new Passenger Terminal with a capacity of 6 million pax/year, in 2005, has provided the chance to grow, both in traffic figures as well as in service quality. Since then, Porto Airport has been registering an average of traffic increase of 8% per year.
    3. 3. Located along the Douro river estuary in northern Portugal, Porto is one of the oldest European centres. The history of Porto dates back to the 4th century, to the Roman occupation of the Iberian Peninsula.
    4. 4. Praça dos Leões (The official name it's Praça Gomes Teixeira but everyone knows as Praça dos Leões)
    5. 5. Praça dos Leões Carmo Church and the Carmelite Church (Igreja do Carmo e Igreja dos Carmelitas) This is, indeed, a curious structure with interesting historical references related to it. It is definitely one of the must-visits of Porto.
    6. 6. Carmo Church and the Carmelite Church
    7. 7. What is noteworthy about these churches is, despite the fact they stand as two different religious edifices, they form, as it were, an apparently single architectural structure. Their story goes as follows: the Carmelite Church was built in the 17th century, and was populated by the Carmelite order of nuns. It is a rather sober edifice, at least on the outside, featuring a plain facade and a bell tower. On the inside it is lushly decorated. The Carmo Church was, however, built in the 18th century. Architecturally speaking, it is much more eyecatching, being an expression of the Baroque style. The inside is pegged out by seven altars, works of Francisco Pereira Campanha, and the exterior is decorated with ceramic tiles brightening with their specific hues (white and blue) the
    8. 8. Carmo Church and the Carmelite Church Now, the two churches are separated by the world’s narrowest house, a house which amounts to no more than one meter in width. It used to be inhabited until the 1980s.
    9. 9. The reason of placing a house between the two religious edifices was to make sure there was no communication of the worldly kind between the nuns of the Carmelite Church and the monks at the Carmo Church, as well as the fact a certain unwritten law stated that no two churches should share a wall in common.
    10. 10. Situated close to the Clergymen Tower and Church (Igreja e Torre dos Clérigos), the Igreja do Carmo é remarkable construction, presenting an amazing panel of tiles on an exterior wall, representing scenes describing the foundation of the Carmelite
    11. 11. The Lions Fountain located in the Plaza de Gomes Teixeira is one of the few sources of the city that were not built in Portugal, while being the most obvious of Porto. Was sent to the Water Company of Porto in 1882, entering service four years later, thus providing water to this area of town.
    12. 12. The Fonte dos Leões (Fountain of Lions) is a monumental fountain 8 metres wide and 6 metres tall. It was awarded to the French company “Compagnie Générale des Eaux pour l'Etranger”, also responsible for the construction of this public equipment.
    13. 13. Igreja do Carmo is the most noteable church in Vitória area, Porto. To it's side this wall azulejos, were designed by Silvestre Silvestri and painted by Carlos Branco. The tiles were produced in a tiles factory in Gaia, suburb of Porto, and mounted on the church's façade in 1912.

    17. 17. The Igreja de Santo Ildefonso is an 18th-century church in Porto, Portugal, situated near Batalha Square. Completed in 1739, the church was built in a proto-Baroque style and features a retable by the Italian artist Nicolau Nasoni and a façade of azulejo tilework.
    18. 18. The church is named in honour of the Visigoth Ildephonsus of Toledo, bishop of Toledo from 657 until his death in 667
    19. 19. Approximately 11,000 azulejo tiles cover the façade of the church, created by the artist Jorge Colaço and placed in November 1932
    20. 20. Extensively repaired following a severe storm in 1819, the church also suffered damage from artillery fire on 21 July 1833 during the Siege of Porto
    21. 21. The tiles depict scenes from the life of Saint Ildefonso and figurative imagery from the Gospels.
