Lisbon
134 Churches
27 Chapels
1 Synagogue
1 Mosque
163 Religious buildings

Porto
45 Churches
36 Chapels
1 Synagogue
82 Religious buildings

Braga
37 Churches
28 Chapels
65 Religious buildings

Coimbra
32 Churches
20 Chapels
52 Religious buildings

Évora
32 Churches
5 Chapels
37 Religious buildings

Santarém
22 Churches
6 Chapels
28 Religious buildings

So, together these 6 cities have 270 churches, 122 chapels, 2 synagogues and 1 mosque. Grand total of 395 religious buildings. Only a very small percentage (+/- 2.5%) are not historic.

These numbers do not include the many private chapels of palaces and manor houses.

Yeah, Azulejos are those tiles painted in blue. I think the Spanish use the same word but pronounced in a different way.
Instead of just azulejos, I should have said Painel de azulejos, which will be something like Panel of glazed tiles, I guess.

Anyway, I'll leave the rest to Johnny, he'll be able to explain you better..plus, he has a proper command of the Eng language.

Painted tiles is the most commonly used translation for azulejos.
