It is an austere work as befits her style. The Church is a Latin cross, divided into 5 spaces plan. Inside are preserved frescoes. It is worth approaching this place a little away but full of charm.

Therefore, we could see the side and the apses of the Church from the trail. The monastery is dotted with touches that seized: rosette, lobed Arch of the door, the cloister, the capitals, inscriptions on the stone, etc. How good monastery that is located in a remote spot. The environment is dazzling: forests of chestnut trees, the Sil River, framed by magnificent canyons and long, long silence.

The views are breathtaking, the forest which surrounds the monastery is charming. A visit very very recommendable.
