One of the arches leading to the cloister, the only place where the colour was not affected by the fire of 1936. The collection of murals rescued from the fire also comprises the decoration of the five diaphragm arches, that of the south wall and a few remains from the east wall. They come from the monastery of Santa María de Sigena (Villanueva de Sigena, Huesca).
