Casa de los Azulejos
Jose Clemente Orozco Murals
The Casa de los Azulejos or "House of Tiles" is an 18th-century palace in Mexico City, built by the Count del Valle de Orizaba family. The building is distinguished by its facade, which is covered on three sides by blue and white tile of Puebla state. The palace remained in private hands until near the end of the 19th century. It changed hands several times before being bought by the Sanborns brothers who expanded their soda fountain/drugstore business into one of the best-recognized restaurant chains in Mexico. The house today serves as their flagship restaurant.
Beauty surrounds us
The museum is a "must see" destination for anyone visiting Mexico D.F. It was the perfect dessert to our previous, delicious visit to Teotihuacan.
The architecture echoed the grandeur of Teotihuacan, albeit in a modern, classic style.
