Templo y convento de San Miguel Arcángel
Monumento Agustino del siglo XVI, construido bajo las órdenes de Fray Andrés de Mata entre los años 1550 y 1560.

En el interior del templo se encuentra una pintura mural que muestra una lucha entre indigenas y seres fantásticos y la confluencia entre la cultura indigena y europea.

De este mural se han dado diversas explicaciones, desde la lucha entre el bien y el mal hasta la representación de la guerra chichimeca. Sin embargo, el verdadero significado debe ser parte sustancial del fin último de la evangelización: la salvación de las almas.
