The construction of stone buildings, churches, defensive walls with towers was conducted from the 1460s. Today, several dozen nuns and novices live here.

The monastic complex is located on a natural plateau with slopes, which in the north swiftly descend to the floodplain of the Luga River.

The Assumption Church, founded in 1495, is the most significant building of the monastery.
