Athipel (aardian: Altepetl, draconic: Altipalla) is the second largest city in Allure, after Fairport. It lies on the south-western coast of the Dragonmaw where the River Chorando empties out. The city is built straddling both sides of the river connected by bridges.

Athipel is a major port and trading hub, acting as a gateway to Los Torres and the rest of Salvatore. It is a wealthy city, where money flows freely and many are able to live comfortably. Items of fine quality always flow through the city, allowing even the poorest of residents to have what little they own to be finely made.

It is the political center of Allure, with all major noble Allurian houses owning an estate within the city. Also, several noble houses from outside Allure own estates in or near the city as well.

Allure is a city built on many different layers of architecture, having changed hands constantly throughout the years. As an old city in prime portage territory, all the major empires and rulers over the years have laid claim to Athipel.
