Absolutely loved our shopping trip to Mayolica Santa Rosa. So many items to chose from. Everything is beautiful. The employees were very helpful and did a great job packing up our purchases. Wear good shoes, the street is cobblestone and the shop is all cement floors.

The drive to this small town from Guanajuato is beautiful. The town is tiny with the pottery place being the main attraction. We arrived when they opened at 10 am and had the place to ourselves for about an hour then buses started arriving. The prices are very reasonable and the designs are not the loud primary colors normally associated with tlelevera. There are several big rooms of all sorts of decorative and functional pieces - one with only white pieces, some very modern in style. There is a bargain bench full of all sizes and shapes of items. Some where the paint blurred or ran which looked really good on several designs. The staff packs everything very well for transport or mailing. The town has a large restaurant just down from the pottery place with good food and a beautiful view. By noon there were street vendors with handmade jewelry and other items. All in all a very enjoyable experience.

Santa Rosa pottery is well worth the trip - we visited a mine in Guanajuato, then drove about 15 minutes into the mountains to reach Santa Rosa. The itinerary worked out nicely: we had a delicious lunch at La Sierra, just down the road from the ceramic store, then hiked around the reservoir at presa de peralillo (you'd need a vehicle with a little clearance to do this, I think), then returned to the ceramic store. Such beautiful stuff, all at great prices. I got all my Christmas shopping done in one afternoon! So I have about a dozen pieces wrapped up, and they go to run my card and it doesn't work. Turns out credit cards and ATMs were down in the entire country for about 12 hours or so. No, I'm not joking. We talked about delivery options, etc, and how I could pay them with a bank transfer but I left thinking I might never get these beautiful things. A few days later they text and tell me they can bring my things to Guadalajara the following week when they come for an artisan expo. Done! (I live in GDL) I went to meet them in Tlaquepaque, paid and picked up my things, all of which were in excellent shape. Great service!

I am not a shopper and was brought here to look at some pottery, but was pretty impressed (and a little overwhelmed) by all the beautiful hand painted pieces. We bought some (of course) and were surprised by how inexpensive it was. We would have bought more “got to have” pieces, but didn’t want to pay for shipping. Incredible artistry!

We visited Santa Rosa de Lima on our way from Guanajuato to San Miguel de Allende (going through Dolores Hidalgo). I highly recommend you stop by this town and store. We took a tour of the facility where they make and paint pottery and then visited the store, which is huge. So unique and something for everyone. I believe they will ship if you make a large purchase that won’t fit in luggage. Down the road is Conservas Santa Rosa (Conservas 1998), a women-run business that sells jams, salsas, wine, nuts, etc. Stop by to support them as well!
