Decorated medieval floor tiles at Strata Florida abbey
Decorated medieval floor tiles at Strata Florida abbey
These tiles in the row of chapels at the back of the abbey complex are thought to originate from the 14th century. Two techniques were used to create the patterns on the tile surfaces: some were printed with a wooden stamp, while others have inlays of white clay. Both types of tiles were laid on a layer of mortar. (Information taken from an interpretation board on site.)
