El Tecpan a través del tiempo
Tras derrotar a los mexicas e inmediatamente después de la toma de Tlatelolco, Hernán Cortés ordenó construir el Tecpan para que fuera la sede del poder Judicial de la Capital de la República de Indios, mismo que estuvo bajo el mando de Cuauhtémoc. Se construyó a 200 metros al oriente del convento con la intención de dejar el área del tianguis de Tlatelolco, mismo que perduró hasta la segunda mitad del Siglo XVIII.La parte alta de la arcada fue un agregado de la época porfiriana que recuperó el edificio para ser la Escuela de Huérfanos, la cual años antes había tenido la protección de Benito Juárez y Carlota entre otros benefactores. Años después la escuela fue trasladada a la Sección 2 de la unidad habitacional bajo el nombre de Secundaria No 16 Pedro Díaz. En el Códice Tlatelolco de 1563 se puede ver el Tecpan y a un enviado del Virrey que está castigando a los jueces del tianguis que no cumplían honradamente sus funciones.

The Tecpan throughout time
After defeating the Mexicas and immediately after taking over Tlatelolco, Hernán Cortés ordered the construction of Tecpan for it to be the host of Judicial Power of the Indian Republic Capital. This was the same that was under the command of Cuauhtémoc. It was constructed 218 yards to the north of the convent with the intention of leaving the area of the tianguis (great market) of Tlatelolco, which lasted until the second half of XVIII Century. The high part of the arch was an amendment from the Porfirian era, which recovered the building for it to be the Escuela de Huérfanos (orphan school), which years before had been under the protection of Benito Juárez and Carlota, among other benefactors. Years later the school was moved to Section 2 of the living unit under the name of Secundaria No 16 Pedro Díaz. On the Tlatelolco Codex of 1563 the Tecpan can be seen along with a messenger from the Viceroy of the New Spain (México) that is punishing the judges of the tianguis that did not honorably fulfill their duties. English translation of caption: Tlatelolco Codex
