Portugal Pavements - Calçada

Portugal's distinctive paving, known as Calçada in Portuguese can be seen in most Portuguese towns and cities as well as in the former Portuguese colonies Brazil and Macau.

The traditional paving is found in many of the squares and sidewalks of Lisbon, so keep your eyes to the ground for a treat beneath your feet.

Portugal Pavements - Calçada

This pavement is in Faro in the Algarve outside the the Igreja do Carmo, known for its Chapel of Bones in the back.


This lovely design is also in Faro in the Algarve at Jardim Manuel Bivar, just north of the Old Town.


This colorful take on the Calçada is on the main, ritzy shopping street in Faro.
