General view of the model of the Sacred Precinct of Mexico-Tenochtitlan. Among the most important buildings were the Ballcourt, the Calmecac, and the temples dedicated to Quetzalcoatl, Tezcatlipoca and the Sun. The precinct occupied an area of almost 4,000 square meters and it was surrounded by a wall called coatepantli (serpent wall) supposedly decorated with representations of serpents. More information on this area can be found in the page written by archaeologist Carlos Javier González on the Sacred Precinct.
