Hotel Casa De La Luz / Casa De Huespedes

We have a newly remolded room at Hotel Casa De La Luz/Casa De Huespedes in Tlacotalpan, Veracruz.

With pending rentals in a week, we had a crew come in and work from 7am to /7pm for 5 days. And believe it or not…we completed the task on time! No small feat here in Mexico.

Here are a couple pictures of the finished room:

Parque Hidalgo~Talavera Tiles~Tlacotalpan, Veracruz–post 2

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

These 10 benches, adorned with hand made TALAVERA tiles , were a gift to the City of Tlacotalpan be the Presidente (mayor) , Sr. Francisco Novoa, in 1944.

They were originally installed along a pedestrian walk between the Zocalo (main town square) and a smaller square some 4 blocks away. When the walk was converted to be used by the auto, the benches were moved to their present location of PARQUE HIDALGO.

Each bench depicts a different scene of Tlacotalpan. They were designed and executed by the Mexican artist German Rogerio, in Puebla, Mexico. Puebla is famous for its Talavera Ware. Dishes, decorative items and tiles.

The initials JMP can also be found on the tiles, but no one knows what or who they stand for..

Here are some pictures of the benches, and the Talavera tiles
