A narrow patio surrounds the entire dome. Inside it, a small altar is found.

There are only two windows, both with iron vertical bars. Stacked tombs of up to three levels high are situated below the dome.


Some minor renovations were done to the Simborio in 1980 and 1993.

At present, the dome is used as storage of construction materials. Plants continue to sprout in the stone walls, covering the left part of the dome and roots are visibly attached to the walls inside the dome.
