La arquitectura religiosa tiene en ella su mejor muestra. Fue levantada durante el siglo XVIII, en la época colonial, pero conserva su esplendor original. La imagen de su santo patrono es considerada milagrosa por lo que sus festejos en agost son muy vistosos.

Church of San Joaquin
Religious architecture here has its best example. It was built during the 18th century, in the colonial era, but retains its original splendor. The image of the patron saint is considered miraculous, so his celebrations in August are popular and well adorned.
