We are in front of the current access entrance of the church of the Monastery of Santa Maria de Lillet, of which we still have remaining its upper part, the pediment, of a triangular shape; and on the inside and worn out, the tympanum of its neoclassical stage.

This building is a museum of different times: pre-Romanesque (remainders of a small apse), Lombard Romanesque (central nave, 11th-12th centuries), Gothic (Northern crossing and gate, 1397), and classic baroque (Tuscan columns, capitals and plaster cornices)

On the 17th of April 819, the Monastery is mentioned on a register of a sale, which verifies the existence of this building. In 833 the primitive church is anointed, dedicated to Santa Maria, Sant Pere, i Sant Joan del Castell de Lillet (Saint Mary, Saint Peter and Saint John of the Castle of Lillet).

In the 9th century, houses and country houses are mentioned around the Monastery.

It was a crucial monastery, since it had goods from la Cerdanya, Ripollès, Berguedà and Comflent.
