Talavera is a type of majolica earthenware, a white and glazed type of ceramic.
Although the Spaniards introduced this type of pottery, ironically the term Talavera is used much more in Mexico than in Talavera de la Reina, Spain.
This fine man hole cover (over the waste water pipes) shows the city shield with the two bulls and the tower.
(compare this with the old stone in the church)
