Masterpiece of Romanesque art of the XX century, this former Benedictine abbey was an active and recognized religious center. All that remains majestic look to offer admirable capitals where biblical representations adjoin the monsters from the depths of time or far east. The top of its tower, the view is impressive on the village and landscape. Historic monument in 1840, it was listed in 1998 as World Heritage by UNESCO, under the Chemins de Saint Jacques de Compostela.
