Tetitla and Atetelco (Teotihuacan)

There are numerous housing complexes located around the ceremonial center of Teotihuacan. Visitors can get access to Tetitla and Atetelco close to Gate 1. The admission is free with a ticket from Teotihuacan. Both places have great murals and give an impression of the temple and housing structures. Highly recommended!

Patio Blanco in Atetelco. It has a central courtyard and is clearly marked off by tree temples. The walls of these temples have been almost entirely reconstructed in order to preserve the murals painted on them.
