A mountain scene with a surging river in the centre foreground which disappears between dark rocks. Above the river is a bridge or viaduct, a horse crossing it. To the left of the centreground is a small stone building overshadowed by a large rocky outcrop with trees and bushes on top. Perched on top of this outcrop are the buildings of the convent. On the right are further rocks and trees and there are mountains in the background.
