They were such that from the patio center, the entrance could not be seen— What feelings does this place provokes in you? The teacher asked.

The four buildings facades were painted in the following way: the east was red, the south blue, the west white and the north black. The decoration in principle was similar in all four. It consisted of a lintel above the entrance and two murals painted on the walls.

At the east facade, on a red background were painted two eagles, one on each wall and over the door another strange bird, looking forward. The south facade, on a blue background, were two serpents, one on each wall and over the door, a huge face of a strange snake; finally, on the west facade on a white background, two Jaguars and over the door, an animal head, shaped as jaguar, serpent and eagle, all at the same time.
