Hi Antonio. There was some discussion on this in 2018, but not much
By analogy, it seems like a current standard pattern would in fact be
surface=sett + sett:pattern=portuguese. sett:pattern has a little more
than 500 uses.  Back in 2018, I've proposed using surface=sett +
paving_pattern=portuguese. For the pavements of sidewalks, this would
sidewalk:surface=sett + sidewalk:sett:pattern=portuguese
sidewalk:surface=sett + sidewalk:paving_pattern=portuguese
Some have proposed using surface=paving_stones instead, but most of
the Portuguese pavements I know are not as smooth as most of the
surfaces represented by surface=paving_stones, so I think surface=sett
is more similar in terms of smoothness in the same sense as defined by
the smoothness=* tag  for pedestrians, skaters, bikers, etc. Paving
stones do include natural stones (as the ones used in Portuguese
pavement), but the top is usually very flat and smooth. If instead you
choose to use surface=paving stones, then
sidewalk:sett:pattern=portuguese would have to be changed to
sidewalk:paving_stones:pattern=portuguese, a change that I think
complicates the tagging scheme.
