It was very interesting to see how cloistered nuns would have lived. Plus, the architecture and stone work in the cloister is worth a visit.

Absolutely a must see! Incredibly preserved, amazing architecture from 12th and 14th centuries as the building was done at different times. Very special place that takes you back in time and makes you imagine stories from the past.
