One of the attractions of the community of Capula is the Church of Santiago Apóstol, which was built in the sixteenth century; It consists of a single nave and roof with two waters.

The decoration that shows the cover corresponds to several medallions with motives apparently of the saints creators of the diverse religious orders that arrived at Michoacán: Franciscans, Augustinians, Jesuits and Dominicans.

The Christ found in this Church shows indigenous features and was found in excavations. Its tower was built at the end of the 19th century. Every July 25 the town celebrates its patron saint, Santiago Apóstol.
