Some food for thought:
Some alternatives are sett=portuguese or sett:type=portuguese
My opinion: TBH I don't really see how this is special. Mosaics in
pedestrian areas and on sidewalks are not specific to Portugal or
Portuguese culture, neither are the patterns unique as shown on WP .
Compare them for example to Prague that is also famous for it
How to distinguish them? If I show the average mapper (i.e. not a
historic prof studying street design ;) a picture of these could
they decide which is which? I definitely could not.
If there is no clear, identifiable property that makes them
sufficiently special then I think something more generic would be
better, e.g. sett=mosaic or so?
If national proud requires it then an additional mosaic=portuguese
could solve that :)
For the specific pattern there exists sett:pattern=* already. I did not
follow/read the old discussion mentioned by Fernando though.
