Founded in the XNUMXth century by Gérard de Corbie, on a route linking Santiago de Compostela, it was a key stopover for pilgrims. The site, inscribed on the World Heritage List by UNESCO, has left us as testimony to monastic life, a remarkable set of Romanesque sculptures including capitals which are true storybooks in stone.
