Puebla's cultural richness is characterized by its emblematic old neighborhoods, such as "the Barrio of Analco" and "Barrio de la Luz," where pottery has been preserved since pre-Hispanic times. In addition, Puebla's "haciendas" (estates) have kept crafts that today have become cultural legacies of great beauty. "Barrio de la Luz," known as "Tepetlapan," was where potters of the time obtained the best clay to manufacture their handicrafts. These crafts are made with clay that is distinguished by its excellent resistance until today. This 1960's antique clay pitcher ("cantaro") from "Barrio de la Luz" keeps its original shape and finishes without restoration.
