Regarding La Casa de los Azulejos. This famous house with its exterior covered in tiles was originally built in the 18th century. It was the infamous Jockey Club during the Presidency of Porfirio Diaz, a symbol of the decadence of the era. Starting around 1917, two American brothers started the Sanborn's restaurant chain here.
