Rua João das Regras 341, Porto

This post is a warning about historic buildings in Porto losing their century-old tiles

While tiled buildings in Portugal are considered one of the world’s most valuable heritages, they have only been legally protected since 2017 (Law n.º 79/2017). Unfortunately, many of these tiles have been destroyed and continue to face threats today.

We need your help to share more cases like these. If you know of any building in Porto that lost its tiles, please reach out to us here.
