In the central zone of Aveiro around Rossio square, there are several interesting examples of two-floor buildings that represent the exuberantly ornamental taste of the beginning of the 20th century, typical of Art Nouveau. Such exemplars are the houses that sell sweet-egg specialities or the Tourism Office of Centro de Portugal region. The façades have multiple arcades, bow windows and diversified décor covering columns, windows, doors, peep-holes and tile panels. Among many other examples, we can mention Agricultural Cooperative House, famous for its warm-coloured tiles in rose, purple and red depicting the lilies of local Fonte Nova factory, or Major Pessoa House, mostly known for its façade in carved stone and forged iron. Inside this house there are colourful tiles depicting countryside landscapes, created by Licínio Pinto and Carlos Branco (artists who have worked for this factory).
