Although the prices are a little high we were taken on a tour of the facility. Everything is made, by hand, from start to finish. The tour guide was very polite and spoke decent enough English that we never had a problem understanding him. The talavera is authentic and they place their credentials on every piece so you know exactly... More

This was the most beautiful ceramic workshop from our entire trip to Mexico! Such a beautiful craft, the artisans here are true artists!! We had a great tour, and the staff was super nice. They have a beautiful shop but they were not pushy like in most of the other places we visited. They didn't need to as we for... More

I love pottery and emailed the staff a few days before my visit. They responded immediately and offered to arrange a free tour in English so I could learn about the entire process of making talavera. My tour of the small production facilities was wonderful and eye-opening---I had no idea how much work goes into making each piece which is... More

We found a brochure of this place at the hotel and decided to give it a try. It was the best decision we made. The workshop in itself is a wonderful place to visit, combining a traditional hacienda feel, talavera murals and an incredible fountain the whole length of the patio. We also went on the visit and saw the... More

The staff were very friendly; we took a tour of the establishment and enjoyed all the various steps that are necessary in making the talavera. At the end, we realized that their prices are not dramatically different from the prices you find at the knock-off places. Next time, we'll buy more of their stuff and get the real talavera.

Our hotel concierge recommended us to visit Talavera de la luz, and we were lucky to have taken his advice. The place is well above all the other ceramic stores we saw in town. The location is absolutely beautiful with a very unique garden and a fountain. We got a tour of the facility and watch artisans work on every... More

One of the highlights of my trip to central Mexico was visiting the Talavera workshop. A short distance from the city center, magnificent pieces of art are perfectly placed with a stunning backdrop of a traditional, colonial building, gorgeous gardens, and a beautiful fountain. The workshop is inviting as you interact with the staff who are clearly love what they... More
