Years later, in 1756, the then parish priest, Don Mariano del Villar, ordered the only bell tower to be erected with a red quarry, and later the parish priest Gregorio Gonzàlez ordered the construction of the neoclassical façade in which a niche with the carved image of the Virgin of Guadalupe and Juan Diego.
Although the parish is dedicated to the apostles St. Peter and St. Paul, the patron saint is the Virgin of the Tabernacle. Its altarpiece is considered one of the most beautiful in Latin America.
