El Grupo del CementerioLos relieves de calaveras con huesos entrelacruzados y tocados presentes en cuatro pequeñas plataformas al norte del patio, dieron nombre al conjunto que data de 900-1000 d.C. Al poniente existen tres edificaciones sobre una plataforma, de las cuales la central es la más conservada. Su decoración es sobria, con muros lisos y un friso que aún conserva algunas espigas. Tiene restos de una crestería calada que estuvo decorada con estuco.Pie de dibujos:Corte lateral de la bóveda maya.Corte frontal de la estructuraMaya-Yucateco:Le múuchi'il pak'ilo'oba' k'aaba'ata'ab beya' tyo'olal le tseek'o'ob yéetel baakelo'ob k'atakbalo'ob yaan ti' kamp'éel mejen táax but'bil lu'um tu xamanil le táankabilo', ku k'iimbesa'al tu ja'abilo'ob 900 tak 1,000 ts'o'okol u k'uchul ki'ichkelem yuum.

on the bas-reliefs on four small platforms on the north side of the patio. Construction dates back to 900-1000 A.D. On a platform to the west, there are three small structures, the central one being the best preserved. The sober decoration consists of plain walls and a frieze that still conserves a few cornstalks. The remains of a roof crest coated in stucco are also found here.Captions, translated:Cross section of the maya vault.Cross section of the front of the structure.
