Portuguese Cobblestone




The Portuguese Walk, as the name implies, is native of Portugal and came around 1500 by the hand of King Manuel I. This art results from calcetamento with irregularly shaped stones, limestone and basalt, which are used to form decorative contrast created between the black and white stones, and the concept of paving patterns are combined with a certain romantic mindset, where the value of nationalism asserts that it will express in search of signs of the past, facts and myths considered milestones of history of Portugal and the construction of national identity. Are used so the cobblestone patterns and typically Portuguese decorative elements related to socioeconomic activities, fish, fruits, grains, animals, crafts and especially the period of maritime discoveries gathered together caravels, mermaids, ropes, shells, ocean waves, stars and armillary spheres.
