It was part of a Benedictine convent; and the church emulates the Jaca Romanesque style, it was founded by Doña Mayor, the Countess of Castile back in 1066. One of the most representative Romanesque buildings in the province of Palencia.

There are two interesting turrets in the corners of the gable end and a Gothic crucifix of the 13th century. Inside, the three naves are divided into five sections, the fifth one being higher than the rest and forming the transept. The naves are covered by round barrel vaults. The lateral vaults are lower and narrower than the central and transept ones, and rest on round arches.
