Puebla Scenes: Antiques and Art

Our wanderings took us to Meson Sacristia de la Campania for comida, recommended by the NY Times.  Address 6 Sur 304, Callejon de los Sapos.  This is an area of arts and antique shops, and the small boutique hotel and restaurant delivered what was promised: an atmosphere full of colonial style antiques and great food.  The ambiance was a bit over the top for me (bright deep fuscia walls, for example) but the mole poblano and quesadilla stuffed with squash blossoms and quesillo was perfect.  The price was right too.  After lunch, we spilled out onto the cobblestones and meandered in and out of the shops to discover extraordinary old wood doors, tiles and other salvage along with antique pottery and talavera.
