Templo de San Sebastián
La pintoresca parroquia de San Sebastián Mártir, edificada entre 1700 y 1725, es una de las construcciones más importantes de Bernal, aunque no cuenta con un estilo que predomine; sin embargo, la mano indígena se descubre al observar los detalles de la torre del campanario.

Los vitrales, que fueron colocados posteriormente, brindan, por los colores, una perspectiva original del espacio interior.
