The Conventual buildings were restored 40 years ago, and the excavations continued until recently, updating the room of the monks, collapsed in the 16th century because of water seepage. You can visit the parlor-Hall of the twelfth, and the Chapter House to the admirable sculpted keys. Of the Abbey Church, there are just relics.
