The Baroque Church of Santo Domingo (Iglesia de Santo Domingo) dates back to 1736. It once used to be part of the first Dominican convent built in New Spain, which was all but destroyed in 1861. The front facade is beautifully decorated with a relief of the Assumption of the Virgin in the center and twelve columns that surround the church's main entrance. It is also worth taking a look at the side of the building, where there are some wonderful carved stone figures of Santo Domingo and San Francisco, linked arm in arm.
