Inscription. El acceso por el lado sur, y su unión con otras columnatas elevadas al norte, indican se usó para separar lo que acontecía en la plaza que se encuentra a sus pies. Esta secuencia de edificios muestra por lo menos, dos etapas constructivas. En la primera, tuvo cuatro crujías abovedadas sostenidas por columnas y paredes estucadas y cubiertas de pintura de diversos colores. En la segunda, se rellenaron las dos crujías orientales con la finalidad de construir cuartos la finalidad de un segundo piso. Durante esta época, se adosó la Columnata Noreste que corresponde al 900-1200 d.C.

and the juncture with other elevated columns to the north indicate that the colonnade was used to isolate events that occurred in the plaza. At least two construction stages are evident in this sequence of buildings. In the first, there were four vaulted bays sustained by columns and stucco walls covered with multi-color painting. In the second, the two eastern bays were enclosed in order to build rooms on the second floor. The Northeast Colonnade was incorporated during the period from 900 1200 A.D.
