Question Tiles for outside

We were hoping to get some picture type wall tiles for outside, but when we went to the tile shop in the port we found it has been closed for some time. This is a great shame and I am very surprised it has closed as I always remember it being full of tiles of various descriptions as well as other typical craft type odds and ends.

Is there anywhere else that does that type of business now - other than the huge shop in Manacor which is just a bit too much of a drive!?

I'm pretty sure that I've seen a Tile & traditional ceramic pottery shop (if that's what you mean) in Pollensa town on one of the streets going up from the square - if that makes sense & is what you're looking for! Does anyone else know?

It probably is Pollensa. Looking for larger type tiles which make up one picture, or a few that follow a theme.

Default Tiles for outside

Hi Belladonna

Maybe you wold be interested in the artisan craftsman I met at the festival of the sea in PP last year.
He paints individual tiles and also full montage scenes as well. If you have ever been in La Bodeguita bar in PP there is a full backdrop scene in there of Seville. He does that sort of thing as well, in addition to all sizes in between.

He kindly painted my apartment name tile on commission - and for a very reasonable price too. I have his card somewhere if you fancy something really individual for your place. Let me know if you would.

The tile shop in Pollenca is in the road above Font de Gall. He does do sets that make up pictures. He often closes over the winter to produce new stock for the next year.
