Rectoría y Santuario de Guadalupe
Originalmente fue fundado en los albores del siglo XVIII, en lo que se conoció antes como la capilla de San Juan Nepomuceno y ésta a su vez, fue fundada en el siglo XVII por los jesuitas, que permanecieron efímeramente en la entonces Villa de Salamanca.

La edificación del Santuario es de piedra sólida de calicanto, su fachada es de cantera estilo neoclásica, siendo originalmente su torre de un solo cuerpo. El capitán Cayetano Martínez, español mandó fabricar el segundo cuerpo de la torre y su remate piramidal con cruz de hierro, de 1854 a 1855, trabajo encargado al albañil don Alejo Nava, así como la fachada y la portada del muro del atrio, diseñando también en estilo neoclásico el altar mayor. El capellán Pbro. D. Toribio Muñiz, en el año de 1893 reconstruyó de nuevo el altar mayor, el cual tiene ciertas reminiscencias del altar mayor de la Basilica Nacional de Guadalupe de la Ciudad de México; reconstruyó la sacristía y en al año de 1907 agregó cuatro cámaras pequeñas que ahora tienen el templo y decoraron las paredes en 1908.

La pintura enmarcada al óleo sobre un lienzo encuentra dedicada a la Sma. Virgen de Guadalupe, y está ubicada al centro del altar mayor, la cual data del año de 1791.
