Benedictine Monastery founded in 977. The building has a basilica layout with three naves, the central one covered with a round arch barrel vault and the side ones with quarter circle vaults, with a transept that protrudes on either side and a central apse enhanced by an ambulatory decorated with Italian influenced capitals. Of the monastic complex, one of the most notable in the Catalan Romanesque style, only the church, with a basilica layout, remains.
