 Parroquia Santiago ApostolEn 1537 se erige la primera ermita, colocando en el lugar una cruz de madera traída por los tarascos. Diez años después se inicia la construcción del templo del hospital y en 1560, el Ilmo. Sr. Vasco de Quiroga la renombra Casa de la Misericordia. 1718 Alejandro de Villarroel inicia la construcción de la nueva parroquia en el mismo lugar donde estuvieron la ermita y la cruz. La obra es concluida en 1739 por el padre Manuel Muñoz. A mediados del siglo XX, año de 1951, el Sr. Cura Lic. Don Antonio Funes y Ramírez en colaboración del Ing. D. Carlos Olvera Pérez se dio principio a la ampliación y reconstrucción de la nueva parroquia, hasta quedar tal y como hoy la podemos observar.
