Homes
 
of
 
The
Aztecs
 
 
The
king
 
of
 
the
Aztecs
lived
in
 
a
large
palace
 
with
many
rooms
 
and
gardens.
 
Wealthy people
lived
in
homes
made of stone
 
or
sun-dried
brick.
 
Wealthy people
had
 
a
separate
bathing
room
 
 
that
was
similar
to
 
a
sauna
or
steam room.
 
Bathing
was
 
an
important
part
 
 
of
 
the
Aztec
daily
life.
Poor people
lived
in
smaller
one
or
two
room
 
huts that had thatched roofs
made
from
palm
leaves.
 
They
 
had
gardens
near
 
their
homes
 
where
they
would
 
grow
vegetables
 
and
flowers.
Inside
 
the
house,
 
there
were
four
main
areas.
 
One
area
was
where
 
the
family
would
sleep,
 
usually
on
mats
on
 
the
floor.
 
Other
areas
included
 
a
cooking
area,
 
 
an
eating
area,
 
and
 
a
place
 
for
shrines
to
 
the
gods.
