This is a historical palace from the 16th century. The building is covered with blue tiles from Puebla. The inside is just amazing with beautiful Mexican tiles and nice decor. Food at the restaurant is very good and cheap.

The food, what one would expect at a sanborn's because, it IS a Sanborn's. And one seldom goes to Sanborn;s to dine, usually just to grab a meal. Though the hoistroy of this place is what makes it special.
