Santa Cruz Main Church dates back to 1857. With a simple architecture, its interior is decorated with paintings depicting the Stations of the Cross and statues of Our Lady of Mercy and Our Lord of the Stations. A cross in bronze adorns the altar. Natural lighting comes through stained glass windows 10 meters wide and crystal chandeliers that resemble the days of the Empire. It also features a baptismal font that dates back to the church's foundation year and a spiral staircase in wood.
