11世纪后期，巴塞罗那的拉莫·贝伦格尔二世规定修道院将从属于隆格多克的圣彼得大教堂（加泰罗尼亚语：Saint Pons de Thomières），而在圣库加特修道院的僧侣中引发了骚乱。圣彼得的居民搬入了加泰罗尼亚的修道院，反对规定的僧人被驱逐出境。然而，巴塞罗那主教对修道院所宣称的权限，被归还给了天主教巴塞罗那总教区。当时圣库加特正控制着圣塞西利亚-德蒙特塞拉特修道院（Santa Cecília de Montserrat）、Sant Llorenç del Munt、Sant Pau del Camp、Sant Pere de Clará和Sant Salvador de Breda。
In the mid-12th century, the construction of a new monastery was begun. It was finished in 1337. In 1350, the fortification works started. In this period, however, the monastery started to decline. The nomination of the abbot, previously belonging to the monks, was switched to the diocese. During the 西班牙王位繼承戰爭, it was occupied by troops of 查理六世 (神圣罗马帝国), causing damage to the structure. Restoration works were completed in 1789.
In 1835, the monastery was abandoned by the monks, remaining empty until 1851, when it was decided its restoration. It was declared a National Monument in 1931.
With a length of more than 30 metres, the cloister was designed by Arnau Cadell and his disciple Lluís Samaranch. It has a square plan with semicircular arches, supported by pairs of columns. Each of the latter has a finely decorated capital, with various details ranging from animals to biblical scenes.
The church is instead in Gothic style. It has a nave and two aisles. The façade has a large (8.2 diameter) 玫瑰窗, similar to those in the 巴塞罗那主教座堂 and 塔拉哥納主教座堂. The church houses a Gothic altarpiece, known as the retablo de Todos los Santos, executed in 1375 by Pere Serra.
