  • The Casa de los Azulejos is a great place with a lot of history! Mum told me the legend of the Conde del Valle de Orizaba who told her son that he would never build a House of Azulejos and the son had built this magnificent House in blue tiles of Puebla! It is a mandatory visit if you visit Mexico! To see the beauty built in the XVI century and that now is a Sanborns Restaurante. The Casa de los Azulejos it's a marvelous historic place! Mother told me the legend of the Conde del Valle de Orizaba whom told his son that he wouldn't built a tile House and the son has built this wonderful house built in the XVI century with blue stone from Puebla and nowadays is a Sanborns Restautante.

  • This is a beautiful historical building. It is definitely something to see if you'd like to see a genuine piece of Mexico. It has both a store and a restaurant. The store has books and traditional candy. The restaurant has beautiful high ceilings and the architectural will take you back in time.
  • Had to go inside just to see it. Considered to be an old place from old times that kept its style with no change or additions. Long wait if interested and crowded too. A gift shop and a chocolate display at the entrance worth a try. Next time I will eat there.
