It was a casual visit, we didn't expect to find so valuable remains in this unknokwn Monastery. The Father explained us every single detail during the tour. We were delighted. It's highly recommended to visit Santa Maria De la Vid Monastery.

We took a walk here since our hotel was virtually next door. The gardens are in a sad state of neglect. However, we did not book a tour of the building, so I can't say anything about the interior.

The guide tour takes around 45 minutes, you visit the cloister, the church and a small museum. There are some remnants of the the Romanesque monastery.
