Rompecabezas arquitectónico: la fachada del TecpanDurante la construcción de la unidad habitacional Tlatelolco, los arquitectos decidieron desprender la fachada principal del Tecpan, retirándolo por partes. Luego, la volvieron a armar para incorporarla como fachada secundaria del convento.
La fachada de dos niveles es típica del siglo XVIII y gracias a la gran piedra conmemorativa que logró conservarse en el edificio, sabemos que fue en el año de 1776 cuando el Virrey Antonio María Bucareli mandó a remozar el edificio igual que la iglesiaAunque se buscaba embellecer el edificio y sin duda significó un reto arquitectónico, lo cierto es que con dichas obras se perdió mucho de su valor histórico.
