The following pictures are mostly of the blue and white tiles found on the walls of the Monaster of San Francisco in Olinda. We'd heard about the nearly 1000 tiles that depicted the scenes from the bible and from the daily lives of the Dutch when they were here in the 1600s. The tiles are in a part of a church whose origin was 439 years ago! These tiles aren't that old, but they are hundreds of years old and in need of protection, restoration and repair. They line several walls of some of the seven chapels in this one building and are pretty amazing to see!
Cool old wooden doors of the church.
