Photographer's Note

The battle to conquest Ceuta in north-Africa by the Portuguese in 1415, led by Dom Hentique the Navigator. Painted here, in the São Bento Train Station, Porto. The tiles are the work of Jorge Colaço, a famous tiles painter, and those Azulejos are enormous in hight and size, I thought it is worth posting inspite of the outside-light effect, and doe's not allow a good light management on it.
