We spent a fun and educational morning at the factory/showroom, as our friendly English speaking guide took us through the entire operation. He started by showing us how the clay was mixed, how the pieces were formed, how they were decorated and how they were fired in the huge gas kilns. The operation, which is in its nineteenth year, is... More

The talavera products made here are so beautiful and there is so much attention to the detail of each product. The tour is free and very informative as to the process of making talavera tile, dishes, vases, etc. We liked their talavera patterns and use of natural dyes the best out of all the talavera places we visited in Puebla....

This is the place to go to find high quality products and to learn about the process of making pottery! The staff was very welcoming and showed us the entire process. While they welcome tourist it had a very authentic feeling, you could tell they were proud to share their art with us, rather than just accompany us to the... More

One of the must-do things in Puebla is visit a Talavera workshop and see these traditional ceramic pieces. During our stay we probably visited more than five shops dedicated only to Talavera and this was by far our favorite. The workshop manager gave us a tour and while he knew English it didn't feel like a fake tourist attraction. We... More

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.
