<p>The Temple of San Francisco Acatepec <br />18th Century, Acatepec, Puebla</p>

Built at the end of the 18th Century, the entire facade of this Churrigueresque church was elaborated using individually crafted Talavera ceramic tiles. Solomonic columns, estipites, cornices, bell tower and dome are all skillfully fashioned by the local potters. The interior of the church equals the beauty of its brilliantly covered facade with elaborate stucco scupltural detail and a pulpit carved in stone.
