[German Version]

A Chichimec settlement (13th cent.?) that developed into an important marketplace and trading hub, it was conquered by the Aztecs in 1473 and incorporated into Tenochtitlán (Aztec religion: I). Destroyed by the Spaniards in 1521, the ruins of Tlatelolco, the 16th/17th-century church of Santiago de Tlatelolco with the ancient Franciscan monastery, and the 16th-century college of Santa Cruz de Tlatelolco along with modern buildings constitute the Plaza de las Tres Culturas in Mexico City.
