Cultural heritage site inscribed in 2003 on the World Heritage List.

The construction of this mission began in 1754; however, it was the first one to be completed as it is the smallest in the Sierra Gorda.

Its name means "with me" in Pame and was founded by Friar Antonio de Murguía according to an inscription located inside the temple.

Its facade is adorned with enormous flowers, foliage, the image of the Holy Trinity, the saints Fernando and Roque, and a rabbit, another Pame symbol. The mission is dedicated to Saint Michael the Archangel, represented at the top of the temple defeating the devil.

Its facade is characterized by incorporating more mestizo elements, displaying large flowers and foliage. The representation of the sun and the moon stands out, symbolizing the syncretism of indigenous and Spanish cultures, as well as the duality of the universe.
