Sotelha Roof tile that was offered to The Pope.

Fátima Mendes, a ceramics painter specialized in baroque tiles, chose the simplicity of this roof tile to paint an image of Nossa Senhora do Sameiro. This piece of art was offered to Pope Francis during his visit to Fatima.

"Roof tiles are a typically Portuguese element. They are often used to cover Portuguese houses".

This is part of the message accompanying the decorated roof tile that was offered to The Pope.
