Monday Murals - Lisbon Zoo

Under one of the overpasses near Lisbon Zoo which was founded in 1884, I spotted this long line of animals on each side of the road supports, which were done with painted tiles.
We were on our way to deliver a parcel to be transported to the Algarve in the south of Portugal and my husband did a pit stop so I could snap a few photos, reason why some of them aren't too good.


















If you like murals or have a mural you'd like to post, this meme is for you; just follow the Linky steps below.  Once you start looking you find murals everywhere.  
Be sure to link back to this blog and visit your fellow posters.  Looking forward to your mural finds posted this week.  Thanks.

  6. Concrete flyovers are so ugly, so what a good way to make them look a bit better. I particularly like the gorilla.
