Monumento Piedra Redonda
La glorieta donde se encuentra la Piedra Redonda, se construyó a principios de 1970, mientras que, la Piedra estuvo abandonada por cerca de 300 años en la mina El Rosario, de donde fue rescatada y trasladada hasta ese lugar, esta pieza data de la época virreinal, en que era utilizada para la trituración de metales como oro, plata y mercurio; el procedimiento de molienda de minerales se realizaba en un molino, del que formaba parte la piedra que era desplazada de forma giratoria por una mula de carga para obtener metales pulverizados. La Piedra Redonda se ha convertido en testimonio de las actividades mineras de este municipio y actualmente es símbolo de identidad de los habitantes de San Joaquin, en representación de la minería que se ha desarrollado históricamente en la población.
