The church is oriented to the east looking for the first sign of light every morning. Built in stone, you can see the different styles like Romanesque, Renaissance and Baroque. At the monastery the nuns among other jobs like ecologic agriculture or attending the hostelry, the made their own soap. They prepared a selection of those soaps so you can take one of them to remember this day.
