For 2 euros you can visit the museum, cloister, chapel and church. The museum has religious artwork. The guards were quite helpful, providing a short summary of the site in English.

A well laid out, well presented church and museum. It was well worth the cost of the ticket as the guide was both knowledgable and interesting. A variety of artists were presented with some of the loveliest murals that I have seen.
