Talavera Tiles of Puebla

Standard

After the Conquest the Spanish started teaching natives how to make Talavera ceramic plates, tiles and ceramicware. These arts have been passed down from generation to generation and Puebla is without a doubt amongst the greatest craftsmen in this field.

 One of the most reknown  Talavera Ceramic factories is the Uriarte Shop located at 4 Poniente. Tiles ablaze with color. Here are a few examples of their work.
