The convent church dates from the 16th century; annexed is the Capilla del Cid, where the hero and some of his relatives were buried.

Some parts of Romanesque style have been preserved, the church being Gothic and part of the façade from the 18th century. Cistercian monks have lived here since 1942 and they make wine as well as medicinal herb liquors.

El Cid found refuge in this monastery during his exile, and he lived here together with his wife and daughters to the end of his days.
