Juego de Pelota 2En estas edificaciones se efectuaban encuentros rituales asociados al movimiento de los astros y a la guerra. Seguramente sus muros estaban recubiertos con lápidas esculpidas y había anillos de piedra en cada lado. Es notable la semejanza entre este juego de pelota y el gran juego de Chichén Itzá en Yucatán. La plataforma larga y baja que se encuentra al frente era un Tzompantli, donde se colocaban los cráneos de los individuos decapitados.

Its walls were almost certainly covered with sculptured reliefs and there were stone rings on each side. There are notable similarities between this ball court and the great ball court at Chichén Itzá in Yucatán.The long, low platform in front of the court was known as Tzompantli, upon which the skulls of decapitated persons were placed.
