    Located in the historic centre of Cajamarca, 1/2 street of the main square and in front of the ransom room. It is an imposing colonial construction (16th-17TH century), Baroque style and based on carved stones; 2 bell towers stand out in its facade. Inside are his Altar and other altarpieces and altars, which are moulded in bronze or carved in wood. Special mention deserves the beautiful sculpture of the Virgen de los Dolores, patron saint of Cajamarca.

    The monastery has a supposed museu where you are guided by children repeating a text like parrots and showing you the obvious, treating you as ignorant. Blaming the poor quality of the paints on photos taken along the years as bad mantaince had no part of it. Reason for no pictures are allowed inside Not recomended
