Fodor's Expert Review Uriarte Talavera
Founded in 1824, this is one of the few authentic Talavera workshops left today. To be the real deal, pieces must be hand-painted in intricate designs with natural dyes derived from minerals. That's why only five colors are used: blue, black, yellow, green, and a reddish pink. English- and Spanish-language tours take place weekdays every half hour between 10 and 2 and cost about MX$500. If you miss the tour, you can only visit the shop and the patio.
