It has a Church with two naves, the main one with a low dome, a small vestuary located in the Main Altar dating from the end of the XVIII century.  A beautiful Mudejar brick courtyard still remains with a low gallery of semicircular arches with moulding over cylindrical pillars. The top cloister has low arches.
