Edificios para los élitesLos edificios llamados el Huasteco, de los Anzuelos y del Pasillo parecen de baja altura al ser vistos desde el interior de la plaza, pero al ser contemplados desde el exterior, por el oriente, la altura de los muros es mucho mayor, ya que va de los 5 a los 8 metros. Esto
es una muestra de que los antiguos arquitectos de Tancama buscaban que estos edificios fueran un tanto inaccesibles para la población común que habitaba en los alrededores.En este conjunto, destaca el edificio no. 8 llamado de los Anzuelos, mismo que presenta tres modificaciones, siendo la
última la de mejor acabado. Ésta consiste en una fachada compuesta de bloques de piedra con cortes de my buena calidad que hoy sólo pueden verse en parte de este edificio y del llamado edificio del cuarto adosado.Por la disposición del sitio, parece que esta plaza tormaba la parte más importante del área cívica ceremonial del asentamiento. Esto se confirma con los hallazgos realizados durante las excavaciones, pues en el edificio número 8 los arqueólogos recuperaron entierros con ofrendas compuestas de objetos suntuarios como conchas marinas y anzuelos de cobre.
English translation:Buildings for the EliteThe buildings known as the Huasteco, Anzuelos (Fishhooks) and the Hallway



seem to be of low height when viewed from the inside of the plaza, but when viewed from the outside, on the east, the height of the walls is much greater, as they range from 5 to 8 meters. This is probably because the ancient architects of Tancama looked for these buildings to be somewhat inaccessible to the common population that lived in the area. In this set of buildings, Building No. 8, also known as the Building of the Fishhooks is the most interesting. This building underwent three modifications, the last showing the best finishing of the stonework. The façade is composed of blocks of stone with high quality cuts that today can only be seen in part of this building and the so-called Building of the Attached Room. Based on the arrangement of the site, it seems that this plaza was the most important part of the civic and ceremonial area of the settlement. This is confirmed by the findings made during the excavations, as in Building Number 8 where archaeologists recovered burials with offerings composed of luxury objects such as seashells and copper fishhooks.
