Ceramic tile mural at Rua da Cascalheira in Tomar

The location of this tile painting or tile mural (azulejos artísticos) in the City of Tomar is at an old cobblestone street stairs which is an extension of the street Rua da Cascalheira. So I believe that this street steps are still called Rua da Cascalheira. In any case I used to walk down this street stairs everyday, as my mother’s apartment is nearby at Travessa da Cascalheira in Tomar. These three photos bellow are of the same tile painting but with different levels of details and it alludes to Festa dos Tabuleiros (Festival of the Trays) which, by the way, is going to be held between 2 and 11 of July 2011.
