  3. Casa de Azulejos


This beautiful Baroque construction is now owned by the Sanborn store-restaurant chain, so you might like to have a snack while you're here. Originally built as a palace for the Marqués del Valle de Orizaba, the tiles (azulejos) on the façade date back to the 18th century and are said to be Chinese in origin. The interior is quite stunning: a Moorish patio and a mural by Orozco are just two of its special features.
