This monument is a representative exponent of the mestizo style. The physical configuration of the monument as for the plant and the dome, is of Baroque style, typical of the XVIII century.

It was built in the eighteenth century, worked in stone by the Peruvian master builder Simón de Asto, whose name is on the main entrance and was built thanks to the help of the miners of this area.


It is located on the west side of the Plaza de Armas, in the heart of the city.


It has a marble main altar, work of the architect Emilio Hart Terre. Two miraculous images are venerated: the Señor del Quinario or "Señor de la Bala" and the Virgen de los Remedios.
