1. The Northern Colonnade Marker
Columnata Norte
Este edificio delimita por completo el lado Norte de la Plaza y originalmente tuvo un techo sostenido por columnas y pilares con bajorrelieves de guerreros en la parte frontal. En el interior podemos observar una banqueta que corre a lo largo de todo el edificio y un altar con personajes esculpidos, que llevan a cabo una ceremonia con ofrendas de copal. Cuenta con cuatro accesos: dos frontales que comunican a la Plaza y dos laterales que la enlazan con el Templo de los Guerreros y la Columnata de la Esquina Noreste. Su basamento presenta integramente, a lo largo, una decoración al bajorrelieve de águilas y jaguares devorando corazones.

Northern Colonnade
This building completely encloses the northern side of the Plaza and originally had a roof upheld by columns and pillars with basreliefs of warriors on the front. In the interior one can observe a stone bench running along the length of the entire building and an altar with sculpted personages undertaking a ceremony with incense offerings. It has four accesses: two in front which communicate with the Plaza and two side ones which link up with the Temple of the Warriors and the Northeastern Colonnade. The pedestal is decorated with basreliefs of eagles and jaguars devouring hearts.
