Nunnery

The foundation of the convent is contemporary to that of the monastery. The ruins give an idea of what could have been a small Middle Ages convent. The grassy courtyard of the cloister is lined with the 13C church and the convent buildings, including a part from the end of the medieval period. Fragments of arcades from the cloister are on display in the Infirmary Museum.
