One may ask, why to buy Spanish tiles in Mexico? If you live in the US or Canada there are two main reasons. Mexican ceramic tiles have Spanish heritage and the price offered in Europe. With the beginning of Spanish conquest, advancing armies brought not only pain and suffering to local population but also art, old European culture and architecture. Moorish style hand painted tile designs were used often to decorate public and sacral buildings. Many high ranking Spanish officials built their houses based on the styling from back home.
Nowadays, you can buy Spanish tiles in Mexico handcrafted in Dolores Hidalgo. Most likely, more tiles are produced in Mexico than Spain. The other issue is the price. Mexican painted tiles with Spanish patterns are cheap and can be obtained with a discount and free shipping to the US. Delivery to Canada may carry extra cost but is also relatively cost effective and feasible for most buyers.
