The monastery is known have existed since the 10th century, but construction was begun on this impressive building in 1142 by the monks of Claraval. The chapel of the La Magdalena and the chapter room still survive from this Romanesque building. In the 15th century it became part of the Congregation of Castile, and its restoration began. The monks abandoned the monastery in the 19th century after the confiscation of church property. The building was bought by a private buyer, but in 1955 it once again became part of a new Benedictine community.
