The building combines various styles - Renaissance, and Gothic, among others - and contains numerous important paintings and sculptures. The underground crypt houses the relics of San Antolín, which lie beneath two previous structures, one Visigoth and the other Romanesque.

This pompous edifice is commonly known as The Bella Desconocida (The Beautiful Unknown One). Tradition has it that it as the king of Wamba who brought the relics of the French martyr Antolín to Palencia and, should this be true, it would explain some of the peculiar characteristics of the architecture, since the building must have formed part of an old martyrium similar to the ones found in Asturias or in old Christian art.
