Talavera, indigenous art and modernity

If in Puebla the art of New Spain is shown in all its splendor, in San Andrés Cholula you can breathe deep pre-Hispanic air. The city was built on the foundations of a large indigenous city, but its apparent simplicity cannot disguise its soul as an artist.

The image of the conquest in the Church of the Remedies presides from the top of the great pyramid. The Chapel of Solitude of the Parish of St. Andrew testifies to such.

Because San Andrés Cholula is the art and the tlacuilo the scribe, the indigenous painter is the author of masterpieces such as the extraordinary mural of the drinkers and the creative explosion of Santa María Tonanzintla.

Visit the majestic San Francisco Acatepec Temple and admire the incredible façade with Talavera pieces, as well as the factories that continue to produce authentic works of art using the traditional process.

But not everything is tradition. Today San Andrés is also a university city with leisure areas and avant-garde spaces such as Container City and the magnificent University Cultural Complex, the center of cultural life. A real luxury.

Located just one hour from Mexico City and 5 minutes from the State Capital. It is known for being a place that combines the best of two worlds: the living history of a Prehispanic Town that still beats through its streets with its cuisine, traditions, monumental constructions, archaeological spaces and its people.
