Portimão tiled maps

I have been to Portimão many times and have never spotted these excellent historic maps. They are in the garden next to the football stadium, pretty well in the city centre. They are hand painted on tiles. The series of maps shows the area from the 2nd Century to the present day, although there is a gap from 1600 to 1924. Perhaps I missed some?

Take a look at this interesting record. Click ‘view original’ on the top menu bar to see the full sized version.
