On the road to Fuente Dé you'll pass this peaceful monastery. The church was built in the 13th century and has some interesting features such as the Door of Forgiveness, only opened on Holy Jubilee Day. The biggest draw, however, is the Gothic church with its chapel, containing the True Cross - what is said to be the largest section of the cross of Christ. Embedded in a Gothic silver gilt cross, the wood is thought to be from the left arm of the cross and has the hole from the nail in Christ's hand intact.
