Plaza Martín Bautista
La plaza originalmente fue mercado municipal. Al centro se colocó un gran monumento que en la parte superior tiene una escultura que representa el símbolo nacional: el águila. El monumento guarda en sus entrañas una "caja de tiempo" con documentos, fotografias, billetes y actas de la época actual, que serán historia para generaciones del mañana.

La obra inició el 11 de febrero de 2010 y terminó en junio del mismo año, llevándose a cabo la inauguración ese mismo mes.
