Murallas y calzadas: límites y comunicación

Los arquitectos prehispánicos hicieron un excelente uso del espacio, distribuyendo cuidadosamente los distintos edificios que eran destinados para diferentes usos: templos, altares y casas habitación entre otros. Desde este punto se observa una serie de estructuras que funcionaron como límite del Recinto Sagrado, que quizá se llamó Coatepantli o Muralla de Serpientes. En total son 10 estructuras expuestas, que colindan una con otra y sus restos continúan por debajo de las avenidas y edificios modernos. En la parte central del norte, se aprecia la separación del Coatepantili, que formaba un acceso flanqueado por banquetas, el cual nos indica el lugar en donde se encontraba la calzada de comunicación con el Tepeyac y Azcapotzalco. La ciudad de Tlatelolco no solo estaba bien planeada al interior, sino también con el exterior. Pie de dibujo:La construcción de cada uno de los templos, edificios y murallas de Tlatelolco, se hizo con una buena planeación arquitectónica y una gran cantidad de trabajadores. English:Prehispanic architects made excellent use of space, carefully distributing the different buildings that were designed to have different uses: temples, altars, and homes, to name a few. From this point, we can observe a series of structures that served as boundaries to the Sacred Sanctuary, which may have been called Coatepantli or the Wall of Snakes. In total, there are 10 exposed structures that come into contact and whose remains still can be found below the modern avenues and buildings. In the central northern part, we note the division of the Coatepantli, which formed an entrance flanked by sidewalks, indicating the place where the communication and Tepeyac and Azcapotzalco roads met. The city of Tlatelolco was not only well planned on the inside, but on the outside as well. English translation of the caption:The construction of each one of the temples, buildings and walls of Tlatelolco was made with good architectonic planning and a great number of workers.
