This post is a warning about buildings that are losing their centenary tiles in Porto

Although tiled buildings in Portugal are one of the world’s most valuable heritages, they have only been protected by law since 2017 (n.º 79/2017). Many of these tiles have been destroyed and continue to be so today.

We need your help to expose more cases like these. If you know of any building in Porto that has lost its tiles contact us here.
