The community's church, Santo Domingo Díaz Ordaz, was built in 1526 and is noted for a number of santos, traditional statues of Roman Catholic saints. Some can be dated to the sixteenth century but are still preserved and in use by local citizens, who provide them with flowers and sometimes even with modern dolls as adjuncts, as in the image on the left.
