The Benedictine Church and Monastery of Saint André de Rendufe are a remarkable set of heritage assets. SOPSEC carried out an in-depth survey and diagnosis, particularly of the church, whose behavior it has monitored for several years; as well as the rehabilitation project of the church and part of the monastery, involving consolidation work and strengthening of foundations, structural consolidation, and resolution of pathologies associated with seepage, drainage and rising moisture. Although the project was concluded some years ago, only in 2021 were the rehabilitation works on the church also completed.
