About this title


Puebla, perhaps the most enchanting colonial city of Mexico, was proclaimed a "heritage of humankind" by UNESCO in 1988, in view of its historical importance and architectural splendor. Puebla's houses have a rich past, blending pre-Hispanic and historical roots with early Mujedar and later 19th-century French influence into a highly distinctive style. This book brings the reader into the typical houses of Mexico's Mixteca region--into haciendas, quaint kitchens of old convents, Viceregal houses, and homes built during the reign of Porfirio Diaz. It will delight travelers, architects, and designers alike.
