The place of rest of El Cid Campeador

This monastery houses the pantheon where the remains of El Cid and Doña Jimena lay.

It was founded by the Benedictines and houses, in the church, the Renaissance-style pantheon, where El Cid and his wife Doña Jimena were buried. Their remains were later transferred to the capital. Only a few archaeological remains exist from that period, such as a Romanesque tower and some parts of the cloister, as the building was completely renovated in the 15th century, in the Gothic style that predominates today. The church, with three naves, is the work of Pedro del Burgo and dates from that period. It has Gothic-Mudejar style stalls. The Chapter House, from the 13th century, houses the museum.
