Of the Benedictine Monastery only the church remains. Inside the church lie the tombs of the most notable abbots of the monastery.

Rather bare but elegant inside; outside makes for a nice photo opportunity. Get there early or in late afternoon as sun can play a spoilsport for the photos at other times. Check out the closure times before you get there. Well worth the visit.

Church is in the main square. It is very cool inside, so good to pop in on a hot day. The church is very run down and you have to pay a Euro to go in, which is odd for a place of worship.

This building is a true lesson in history and a really well preserved piece of Spain's history. The building is lovely and absolutely worth looking at. You feel like you are stepping back in time. I loved this building.
