Premonstratense convent from the 12th century, inhabited by Cistercian nuns. To be noted is its Romanesque chancel. The church is the work of the second half of the XVIII century, built with blocks and ashlars and masonry slate. The floor is a Latin cross with straight chevet inside and outside, staggered presbytery and covered with a half barrel vault.
