  The monastery belonged to the Order of Los Jerónimos from 1432 until the 19th century, and has a church with three apses dating from the 12th and 13th centuries. It was restored in 1964. Highlights include the windows in the central apse, the vaults, the transverse arches, the capitals, the Gothic mausoleum, the Romanesque tomb and its two cloisters. There is also a 15th-century canopy with six reliefs alluding to the life of the Saint.
