Its architecture is 12th century Cistercian and Transitional Gothic, modified in the 17th century. The guesthouse was built in the 16th and 17th centuries.

The Romanic style church with Gothic influences has three naves, cross shaped with a large end room (the oldest part, from the 12th century). The main chapel resting on eight pillars, with a semicircular apse leads to seven smaller apses, each with an altar. There are Gothic style vaults with pointed arches and capitals and supports decorated with vegetable images.

There used to be a railing separating the village people from the monks, in the middle of the central nave. The Monks Room is from the beginning of the 14th century, divided into two naves by two cruciform pillars with pointed arches and semi-circular transversal arches with stone vaults. It was a main Cistercian centre.
