Antique Cement Tile in Mexico

On a 2012 trip we were in a city with old cement tile in many of the small shops and big churches. We took snapshots at every opportunity. The sad thing was that some shops had covered over the beautiful old tiles with cheap vinyl squares. Sometimes you could see the old floor peeking out from tears or worn spots. But fortunately we also found many small shops, offices and schools which loved their historic tiles. We often asked permission to go inside to photo and everyone couldn't have been more hospitable.

We wonder what they were thinking when they abruptly stopped the tile border in the doorway of this shop. Maybe it was once part of a much larger room and cabinets covered this part, or maybe there was a repair necessary and there were no extra border tiles around.

Hacienda Yaxcopoil

Yucatan Hacienda Yaxcopoil

Hacienda Yaxcopoil is an historic Yucatan landmark that embodies the grandeur of the 17th century Spanish colonial era and the 19th century henequen boom in authentic detail. Located 20 miles south of Merida, is a favorite tourist destination for those exploring the Hacienda Route, the Puuc Route and the Mayan ruins at Uxmal. Hacienda Yaxcopoil has been the location of several film and television productions, and is featured in most travel guides. Its archives are frequently cited in historical texts and research. Hacienda Yaxcopoil may be the best preserved but unrestored hacienda in the Yucatan.
