Monasticon Praemonstratense (III, 190)
Approximate modern location: Most beautifully situated at the top of a mountain about one hour's distance from the village of Guardia, and three hours distance from Tremp, Prov. de Lerida, Spain.
Elm-Number [See below]: 226*
Other Comments: Most of the monastery survives in ruins. Tragically, the archives of this house survived intact, but were destroyed during the Spanish Civil War (1936).
