The porch is the only part of the previous enormous monastery which remains; during the War of Independence the rest of it was destroyed. The porch is Plateresque in style (16th century) with figures such as the Catholic Monarchs, Fernando and Isabel. In the crypt are two paleo-Christian sarcophagi (4th Century) and some reliquaries that contain the mortal remains of Zaragozan martyrs, Santa Engracia among others, who was martyred during Valerian's (258) or Diocletian´s (303) persecutions. The Christian poet Prudentius (5th Century) praised Zaragoza in his poems because of its martyrs, in particular Engracia.
