House of Tiles
This beautiful Baroque construction, the House of Tiles (Casa de los Azulejos), is now owned by the Sanborn store-restaurant chain, so have a snack while visiting. Originally built as a palace for the Marques 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.
This Sanborns chain restaurant is a great stop in Mexico City. The exterior of the building is covered in tiles and has a charming and historical story behind it.

It is definately worth the trip to say you have been to this famous spot in mexico.
