Casa Cural
Hermosa casa colonial, por su ubicación en esquina y por estar frente a la plaza principal, así como por sus características arquitectónicas. Seguramente fue casa de un conquistador y posteriormente de sus descendientes hasta el Siglo XIX. La casa es de crujía en escuadra por estar en esquina seguida por un corredor arcado con columnas de piedra y arcos de medio punto, se accede por un portón para calesas enmarcado por un marco de piedra tallada y zaguán con baldosas de piedra, el terrene del actual Centro Artesanal Regional “Zací” debe de haber sido parte de este predio. Hoy este edificio está en poder del clero y alberga la casa de estancia del párroco de la Iglesia de San Servacio.
