It is a building from the beginning of the 18th century (colonial era) and partly remodeled in the 19th century, the first patio (first bay) is complete and allows a clear reading of the colonial architecture of Arequipa, this patio is completely restored with the Typical 45 degree rounded pebble floor, all rooms are roofed with 45 degree barrel vaults and ashlar (ashlar in the first third and brick in the remaining 2 thirds). There is a doorway in this first patio that bears the anagrams of Jesús Hijo Sagrado, María and José, in planiform carving with a double cornice of which only one cornice remains, as well as a staircase that leads to the roofs. This second floor was a typical building of the first republic, which was added and demolished with the earthquake of 1958, the corbels that supported the balconies under each of the openings of the façade are still preserved.

This building has great artistic values, one of which is that the refectory and the chapel are defined by arcades in good condition, adjoining the second courtyard, where modern architecture is developed that is contextual with the historic building. The guardilla also presents intact, these guardillas are an example of the typology of the Virreinal and Republican ancestral mansions of Arequipa.

The new construction was carried out in the 80s and 90s, it is a building that has the authorization of the INC Arequipa, on what was the second courtyard that could not be preserved to this day; but the new construction is an architecture designed not to contrast with the historic building, its function is to be a hotel; the rooms are freely accessible, thus leaving the patrimonial values for the contemplation of all visitors.
