Centro Historico-

A few more views of the Historic District

The Casa de los Azulejos- AKA the House of Tiles. It was built in the late 1500's. Apparently some nobleman wasn't very impressed with his son's lack of ambition and told him he would "never build a house of tiles" (I guess tile decor signified wealth). So when the son found success he stuck it to his dad by building this huge tile encrusted home- or so the legend goes.

I love the guy on the right. I think he was probably staring at Colin, as pretty much everyone does. Welcome to Stuckihouse, guy on the right!
