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.

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

The workshop is inviting as you interact with the staff who are clearly love what they... More

I strongly recommending visiting a Talavera workshop and seeing how the beautiful pieces are produced. This workshop in particular is really convenient, only a short walk from the city center. Housed in a beautiful colonial building, with one of the prettiest gardens I've seen, the entire experience is magnificent. You can see how this is an art worth preserving!! And... More

One of the elements that make the city center in Puebla so special is the Talavera tile decoration in the buildings, so we decided we had to go visit one of the workshops. Talavera de la Luz is very accessible from the city center and is one of the most beautiful workshops I've seen. We usually visit craft shops when... More

They gave us a guided tour of the process used to make Talavera, a type of ceramic that came from Spain in Colonial times. We also had a chance to visit their... More
