Photographer's Note

The eastern building forming the quadrangle is the smallest of the group at about 155' (47.5 metres) in length. A set of 8 stairs the length thereof lead up to the 5 doorways. This is the central entrance showing the fundamental Puuc features, i.e. a base molding of groups of four small colonettes, then the medial molding above the lintels, a frieze fully decorated, then another (cornice) molding of more colonettes, and finally the cornice itself. The column of three Chaac masks is topped by a trapezium (above the cornice molding) made up of parallel bars, each longer than the other the higher they go, consisting in two-headed serpents.
