La Zona Chica
Se pueden contemplar diferentes etapas constructivas del límite en el recinto ceremonial, posiblemente el Coatepantli (Muralla de los Serpientes).En el patio estucado se aprecian restos de las habitaciones de quienes hacían los mantenimientos de los templos. En la escalinata del acceso hacia el oriente se observa un pequeño altar rectangular que delimita el centro del mismo Recinto. Se ubica de frente a un gran adoratorio circular que esta orientado al oeste. Evidencia de la ocupación colonial de Tlatelolco son los restos de un equino que se localizaron sobre el adoratorio. English:
The Small Area of Tlatelolco
Different building stages of the perimeter wall of the Sacred Enclosure are visible, including what could be the Coatepantli or "Wall of Serpents". Within the stuccoed courtyard stand the remains of the quarters where the workers responsible for the temples' maintenance once lived. On the eastern stairway we see a small rectangular altar that stands in the centre of the Enclosure. It was built in front of a large, circular shrine that faces west. The remains of a horse found atop the shrine are evidence of Colonial-period occupation in Tlatelolco.
