Iglesia de San Juan Bautista
Esta iglesia fue fundada en el siglo XVI por los agustinos del monasterio de Atotonilco el Grande. El relieve del portal principal fue donado por Pedro Romero de Terreros que era un devoto del arcángel. Los altares laterales interiores son de madera y se supone que son del siglo XVIII. Uno es barroco en el estilo pero le faltan columnas. Contiene una gran pintura del Arcángel Miguel representada con dos santos franciscanos ayudándolo con las almas atrapadas en el Purgatorio. Los altares del otro lado son más tradicionales de estilo barroco. En esta iglesia podemos ver algunos cuadros que datan de 1531 en los cuales se observan cristos, santos y arcángeles pintados en oleo, que fueron traidos de Espana por Pedro Romero de Terreros.
