In the western corner are the walls of the old Mother Church, damaged by an earthquake in 1985. A few blocks south of the Plaza de Armas is the Iglesia del Carmen, which has three naves, highlighting its central nave barreled, decorated with columns and capitals carved in stone.
A few blocks east, and across the Alameda, is the San Francisco Church, belonging to the Franciscan order. The convent was originally raised in 1731 in an area now called Old Convent. After the founding of the city, due to severe damage to an earthquake, the convent and church moved to its current location in 1758. The present church began in 1880 and was inaugurated in 1904, in a building of Gothic style, arches, slender tower and simple interior, where the Virgen de la Velilla, only existing replica of the Virgen del Santuario de Mata, Monte Agudo, extracted from Spain in 1734 is saved.
