About Tlacotalpan

Tlacotalpan is a town in the eastern coast of Mexico. It's beauty and uniqueness had inspired different artists from musicians, painters and in this case, designers. Tlacotalpan was chosen as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1998 because the "urban layout and architecture of Tlacotalpan represent a fusion of Spanish and Caribbean traditions of exceptional importance and quality... Its outstanding character lies in its townscape of wide streets, modest houses in an exuberant variety of styles and colors  and many mature trees in public and private open spaces." (UNESCO, 1998.).
