Casa de los Azulejos

The house of Tiles

Walk along Madero Street until you come to the corner of Filomeno Mata. Here you will see a house covered in blue and white tiles. This house, located at number 4 Francisco Madero Street, is covered in azulejos (tiles) from the state of Puebla, which are called talavera.


Built in the 16th Century, this mansion has an interesting history:
In 1737 the Count and Countess of Orizaba ordered the renovation of their home and the placement of the tiles.

From 1881 it functioned as a private men's club.

In 1917 it was converted into a drug store and soda fountain which eventually evolved into Sanborn's, a chain of restaurants and department stores, which is what it is today.
