Gorgeous aren't they and just sitting there, exposed to the elements and people's feet. I think medieval tile patterns are my favourite inspiration source.

It never ceases to amaze me that where things could be done simply, they simply were not. Humankind can't seem to settle for strickly functional. There seems to be an innate need to embellish, to beautify, to elevate the simplest task. What beauty these publicly places felt compelled to put under our feet.
