The monastery is laid out in two different areas: the convent and the Virgen de Jaraba Sanctuary. Together they conform a grandiose rectangular building flanked by four sturdy towers.

The oldest part of today’s monastery is the Sanctuary, dedicated to the Virgin and patron saint of Valencia. Only the doorway remains of the primitive church with its single nave, built by order of James I in 1238. The current church was started in 1300 and finished in the middle of the 14th century. The statue of the Virgin stands in the main chapel of the sanctuary.
