The House of Tiles

Gisselle G. 5th period

House of Tile (Casa de los Azulejos)

The House of Tiles is an 18th century palace located in Mexico City, built by the Count del Valle de Orizaba family. Three of the four exterior walls are made up of blue and white tile from Puebla state. The building is very nice and it used to have a central patio with a beautiful garden where you could sit and see the stars, but now it is covered to keep the rain away from customers. The house today serves as a flagship restaurant.
