This 12C and 13C building was constantly reworked. The most remarkable feature is the Pórtico del Paraíso, which imitates the Pórtico da Gloria of the Santiago de Compostela Cathedral, with its three wonderfully sculpted arches and primitive colouring. A variety of valuable artefacts are displayed in the museum housed in the chapterhouse (13C): worked gold items, statues, chasubles and a portable altar from the 12C.
