This is incredible, what an amazing project to make. Ik denk dat je ogen tekort kwam....
Louis: The tiles are all around in this entry hall of the station.Interesting incident: as I was positioning myself to take a picture, I noticed this young guy, maybe 4 mtrs in front of me, trying to make a picture of the wall behind me. So he was in my way and I was in his way. I could see he was not very happy. So I invited him to come and stand right next to me and we were able to shoot shoulder to shoulder, pictures of the opposite walls. He smiled and was happy - which, of course, is good.
The tile work is beautiful! Love that!
Louis: Fantastic to see in reality, Elizabeth.
A nice presentation, Louis.
Louis: Thank you, Frank.
That's the thing I'll never forget about Spain, too, Louis: all the tiles! I like your presentation here.
Louis: Thank you Ginnie. Unfortunately, I can't show all the pictures I have on SC, since that will take forever.

I think I've got to go there someday, that tiling is wonderful
Louis: That will be one good reason to go, Chris.

A gorgeous station which I did not see when I was there. Now I want to go back.
Louis: Just put Le Camping car in reverse gear - that should do it, gutteridge.
It's an amazing place, isn't it?
Louis: Amazing, as you have shown with your pictures of the place, back then.
I think Tom brought us here before. I am impressed with the tilework.
Louis: Yes, that was close on two years ago, if my memory serves me well. Yours definitely does.
I don't think I've ever seen a station decorated like that, it's very impressive.
Louis: Very impressive, indeed. I believe that the tiles account for most feet across the floor, in that building.
Nice, I like how you assembled the shots
Louis: Thanks Claudio.
It is wonderful Louis. I have a feeling Tom posted some pics of these tiles a while ago but not the whole scene
Louis: Thanks Bill. Yes, Tom posted some pictures of these tiles, indeed

Magnifique fresque.

Please post as many tile pictures as you can, Louis. They are fascinating, especially when they tell a story like this
Louis: Shucks, I can try Lisl, but I have been in Portugal last year in May and have posted 116 pictures of that holiday, since 6 June 2017. Since then I have built up a number of more recent pictures. My feeling is that it is getting out of hand. I want to visit Berlin and Belgium end of this May - so you can just imagine where everything is going. And I am already skipping lots of good pictures from the Portugal visit. The place is just amazing.

if i share my personal opinion, Louis, this is every bit how the main concourse of any major train station should look like.
Louis: It would be good, but then variety is the spice of life, they say. But I tend to agree that this is exemplary, Ayush.
stunning tile art indeed Louis... i love the blue colours....petersmile
Louis: The tiles in Portugal is just very special, peter.
