Plaza de San Sebastián
Hacia el otro lado del Río Querétaro se establecieron, durante la época virreinal, la mayoría de los barrios indígenas en tierras conocidas como «la Otra Banda», que contaban con frondosas huertas, árboles y sembradíos. Uno de los más conocidos fue el de San Sebastián, nombre recuperado por su templo, dedicado al santo del mismo nombre. Hasta la fecha, el corazón de este barrio sigue siendo la plaza. Este espacio es también conocido porque a inicios del siglo XVII se pusieron en marcha un molino, un obraje y una fábrica de aguardiente.

Casa del Faldón
Fue construida a finales del siglo XVII y principios del XVIII, tomando su nombre de una antigua anécdota donde, en una procesión para conmemorar el Jueves de Corpus, el acaudalado regidor Fadrique de Cázares se vio envuelto en un altercado con el alcalde don Pablo de Tapia, quien lo condenó a vivir fuera de la traza de la ciudad. Ahí construyó esta casona que contaba con acequia, caballerizas, troje, huerta y varios patios. Actualmente es sede de un centro cultural.

edificaron este templo en 1718. Inicialmente era una pequeña construcción de cal y canto; sin embargo, con los años fue creciendo y en 1720 fue erigido parroquia, extendiendo su jurisdicción hasta el pueblo de San Pedro de La Cañada. Procuró la evangelización de los indígenas que vivían a su alrededor, donde formaron cofradías y crearon fiestas patronales que permanecen hasta nuestros días.

Plaza de San Sebastián
During the viceregal era, the lands across the Querétaro River were known as la Otra Banda (literally "the Other Band"). The majority of indigenous districts were located here, with leafy orchards, trees, and fields. One of the best known was the San Sebastian neighborhood named for its temple dedicated to the saint of the same name. It was also known for the construction, in the early 17th century, of a mill, a workshop, and a distillery. The center of the neighborhood remains the Plaza de San Sebastián.

Casa del Faldón
Built in the late 17th and early 18th centuries in the Plaza de San Sebastián. It is named for an ancient anecdote in which, during a procession, the wealthy city councilman Fadrique de Cázares was involved in a confrontation with the mayor, Don Pablo de Tapia, who condemned him to live outside the city. So, he built this house with stables, granary, orchard and several courtyards. Today

Temple of San Sebastián
The Franciscans built this temple in 1718. Initially it was a small construction of lime and gravel, however, it grew throughout time and, in 1720, it was designated as a parish church, extending its jurisdiction to San Pedro de La Cañada town. This temple was built to evangelize the indigenous people who lived nearby. Here they formed religious associations and created festivals dedicated to patron saints that continue to this day.
