The Church of the Preciosa Sangre de Cristo

Initially it was dedicated to assist the local parish, but in 1893 Archbishop Eulogio Gillow declared it a separate parish. The main facade of the church has a portada (ornate, multilevel entryway) and three towers with small steeples.

The interior has a single nave with a barrel vault. In the presbytery there is an image of Jesus guarded by angels with the Virgen Dolorosa at the foot of the cross.
