Templo y Convento de San Antonio
En 1613 se inició la construcción del Convento por los religiosos franciscanos adscritos a la observancia de los dieguinos. Templo y convento quedaron bajo la advocación de San Antonio de Padua y al cuidado de la Provincia de San Pedro y San Pablo de Michoacán.La obra fue concluida en 1678. Hacia 1700, la generosidad de Juan Caballero y Osio transformó al convento y al templo, adornándolos con ricos colaterales barrocos y un magnífico retablo. Se conservan dos espléndidas esculturas virreinales de San Francisco de Asís y San Pedro de Alcántara. Dos de sus frailes, Felipe Luna y Cristóbal Suárez, conspiraron a favor de la Independencia de México. English:

The church and the monastery remained dedicated to San Antonio de Padua and to the care of the Province of Saints Peter and Paula of Michoacan. The church was completed in 1678. About 1700, through the generosity of Juan Caballero y Osio, the monastery and the church were transformed being adorned with walls in the rich baroque style and a magnificent altarpiece.
