    Cerveceria Timón: Short break

    by El_Sueco Updated Oct 16, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Short break. The problem in Spain is to get a meal after 16.00. However this restaurant had when we arrived at 17.00 some things we could eat and they also served us a tortilla. Thanks!

    Favorite Dish: Manitas de cerdo, tortilla de patatas
    y cerveza.
    A tortilla de patatas always is very good to eat. This time as an additive we did choose a traditional dish, the pork feet. Not so much meat, best is to put them into your mouth and separate the meat from the bones.
    Good, but not my favourite meal.

    Take your photos at Plaza de San Agustín...

    by El_Sueco Updated Oct 15, 2004

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The San Agustín Place is very popular, at our visit we did see two couples recently married taking their photos at this place.
    The facade behind the couple is the San Agustín church. The church date from the 17th century and was the first work by Friar Lorenco de San Nicolás. It is made in baroque brick style which is typical for this town (said the info sign at the place).

Talavera de la Reina Off The Beaten Path

  • The term TALAVERA

    --- quote ---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.

  • Do not miss all artistic things ...

    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)

  • City scene

    I saw it first when I came home, hope you can read the text. The t-skirt in red the man is wearing has the text "Talavera de la Reina" - was he a tourist or a local patriot?

  • A mix of old and new styles

    The picture show to the left the old wall and towers at the Carnecerian Street and to the right the new buildings.The old findings seem to be well held, you see information signs all over the town. Memories are build in, in the walls, as for instance stone findings (see the Basilica de Santa Maria) and new made signs and boards.

  • Talavera - the town of ceramics

    The town Talavera de la Reina is known as the city of ceramics. As you walk along the street you will see an abundance of signs and boards made in ceramics, often shop signs are made in ceramic, and this of course is valid specially for a ceramic shop.
