Conjunto Plaza Oeste
Este conjunto se ubica al oeste de la Calzada de los Muertos y en la parte central del Complejo Calle de los Muertos. Es muy similar al conjunto localizado justo al otro lado (este) de la Calzada. Presenta comunicación hacia los demás grupos arquitectónicos que componen el Complejo. Al igual que en toda la ciudad, aqui se aprecian claramente varios niveles constructivos que corresponden a las diferentes fases de ocupación de la cultura teotihuacana.

En este conjunto hay una gran plaza central alrededor de la cual se localizan tres basamentos piramidales y en medio de éstos, se encuentra un altar. En el resto del conjunto existen plataformas, adoratorios y habitaciones, ordenadas alrededor de plazas y patios, además de corredores y pasillos.

English:
West Plaza Complex
The West Plaza Complex is located to the west of the Avenue of the Dead and at the middle of the Avenue of the Dead Complex. One finds a similar, corresponding group on the east side of the Avenue. It is connected with the other groups that make up the entire complex. In evidence here, as in the rest of the city, are the various levels of construction corresponding to different periods of the Teotihuacan culture.

Here in this group you find a large central plaza ringed by three pyramidal bases which look down on an altar in the middle. ln the remaining part of the complex are found platforms, shrines and varying sized rooms,arranged around plazas and courtyards, corridors and hallways as well as communication between each group.
