Tlatelolco

La conjunción de edificios modernos con Monumentos Prehispánicos y Coloniales da el nombre de la Plaza de las Tres Culturas.Los Monumentos Prehispánicos corresponden al Recinto Ceremonial de México - Tlatelolco, la ciudad gemela de México - Tenochtitlán y el lugar donde se encontraba el mercado más importante de su momento. En este recinto podemos ver templos dedicados a deidades mexicas como
Huitzilopochtli, Ehécatl y Quetzalcóatl.A su vez los Monumentos Coloniales como son el
Tecpan, la Iglesia de Santiago y su Convento fueron instrumentos para la conquista espiritual y
la colonización de los grupos prehispánicos.Finalmente, los edificios modernos como la torre
insignia de la Secretaria de Relaciones Exteriores, la Clínica del Seguro Social (antes vocacional) y la
Unidad Habitacional Nonoalco - Tlateloco representan al México Contemporáneo.Leyenda del mapa del sitio:
