Summary 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 colonial roots with early Mudejar 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 houses, and homes built during the reign of Porfirio Diaz. It will delight travelers, architects, and designers.
