Calzada ceremonialEl acceso principal al centro cívico ceremonial en época prehispánica se realizaba a traves de una gran calzada de casi un kilómetro de longitud y entre 13 y 17 metros de ancho. Ésta se diseño con un trazo de oriente a poniente. Inicia en la cañada, hoy conocida como La Caja, y culmina en la plaza este frente al Complejo A.Por su orientación, amplitud y trazo urbano fue una vialidad por la que, siguiendo el transcurso del sol, del día y la noche, los devotos se allegaban al templo ubicado en lo alto de las estructuras piramidales, símbolo del poder político y religioso.English:Ceremonial avenueIn Pre-Hispanic time, the main Access to the ceremonial centre was via a large avenue almost a kilometer long and between 13 and 17 meters wide.
