Initially it was built in Moquegua a main church, Santa Catalina from Alexandria that was affected time and again by the constant earthquakes that razed the area. Finally, in August of 1868 a terrible earthquake knocked down it and it could not be reconstructed, for what Sacred Domingo's monastery transformed into cathedral or main church.

Church of a single ship, plants in Latin cross, built in stone of style neoclassicist

This church is one of the few ones in the world where it is worshipped to a Santa of present body, Santa Fortunata whose remains were exhumed of the Catacombs of Calepodio after the XV century, arriving to Moquegua in 1798.
