On the west side of the plaza is Iglesia San Pedro, a colonial church built with indigenous or artisanal materials - adobe, wood from the cactus, and in lieu of nails, large leather straps. It dates from the 17th century, though the present walls were built in 1745 and the bell tower was added in 1890.
