The monastery and complex dates back to the 1314 when it was built and reflects the architectural style of the time of Romanesque and some Gothic. The complex is dedicated to St. Francis of Assisi. There was a previous church on this site that was encompassed by the new. It can be seen for some long ways with the steeple standing out in the skyline. There are pilgrimages annually to the church for salvation prayers. The doors are closed and only used for services, but some tour guides to get inside for viewing on special circumstances. There is a little courtyard in front of the main entry
