Templo y Convento de San Antonio
En 1613 se inició la construcción del Convento por los religiosos franciscanos adscritos a la observancia de los dieguinos. Templo y convento quedaron bajo la advocación de San Antonio de Padua y al cuidado de la Provincia de San Pedro y San Pablo de Michoacán.
La obra fue concluida en 1678. Hacia 1700, la generosidad de Juan Caballero y Osio transformó al convento y al templo, adornándolos con ricos colaterales barrocos y un magnífico retablo. Se conservan dos espléndidas esculturas virreinales de San Francisco de Asís y San Pedro de Alcántara.
Dos de sus frailes, Felipe Luna y Cristóbal Suárez, conspiraron a favor de la Independencia de México.
