One of the few traditional Talavera shops that follows the historic methods of production. This place is much more! It is set in a beautiful location, where murals, water fountains and plants set a great stage to see the many different steps and hands that take to produce a single piece of Talavera. Their store has a great variety of... More

I have visited this factory and store several times and have been very pleased with their products. It is genuine talavera and you can go on the tour to see the entire process. It is entirely hand made from start to finish - from the mixing of the clays by foot to the hand painting of each piece. I would... More

We entered Talavera de la Luz through a closed doorway from the street into an Alladin's Cave of the most exquisite pottery in Puebla. The quality, design and workmanship were superb! Georgina and Sandro were friendly and most helpful. If you are in the market for quality Puebla pottery, save yourself time and head straight to Talavera de la Luz!

Wonderful place to learn all about talavera. Once you hear about the process it is hard not to want to bring a piece (or two) back home! A special treat.

Besides learning the fabrication process, here you can see the artists at work. Each product is a signed piece and original. For lovers of this type of quality pottery, the variety is large and unique. They take credit cards and will ship.

Fantastic ceramic workshop! Really cool stuff, super friendly and knowledgeable staff and then of course the setting is amazing and authentic…I could just sit in that garden the whole day with cold drink and relax to the sound of trickling water in the many fountains! My biggest problem is that I still have a few months left of travelling with... More

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....

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
