Copper and zinc covered azulejos in bas-relief accent the lines of the Knight’s Pool terrace in the noble Summer house of Benfica. Again we have a classical composition interpreted in Portuguese style: tall roofs, simple articulation defined by the tiles, and the extensive use of painted azulejos to emphasize the architecture, as in the arcade.
