Portuguese pavement (PortugueseCalçada Portuguesa), is the traditional paving used in most pedestrian areas in Portugal and old Portuguese colonies such as Brazil and Macau. Being usually used in sidewalks, it is in plazas and atriums this art finds its deepest expression.

One of the most distinctive uses of this paving technique is that of the Copacabana beach sidewalk in Rio de Janeiro, designed as a black-and-white waves pattern.
