Nicaraguan Tile Photos - Photos of Tiles in Nicaragua


 

After many years of making cement tile in Nicaragua, we remain infatuated with the historic Nicaraguan tiles we first saw in Granada, Nicaragua. We are also pleasantly surprised when we bump into a vibrant, swirling example of Nicaragua tile in someone's living room or a local shop.

 

Here are a few examples of the tiles that first caught our attention and some others we spotted later. Don't hesitate to send us your Nicaragua tile finds!
