    How immaginner and believe possible one such building may be found in the steep and lost somewhere in the depths of the forest, at the end of the tiny and winding paths. I still have trouble understanding how this monument to could be built the or it is with the means at the time do not hesitate to move until there this place is majestic, you you recall all your life.

    Few words to describe, we have to go. The monastery can be discovered from the road coming from the Plan of the Tower (attention so beautiful but narrow road). Park on the parking lot then take the time to walk to the monastery. For hikers, there are departures from paths. Please find to go there because the chartreuse of Verne does not visit some days such as religious holidays. Otherwise, you will not regret.

    What a superb monument this Chartreuse nestled in the middle of the chestnut trees. She wins at the end of a road that never ends in the middle of a wild she stands in front of you beautiful. What courage had the builders who have the true for hundreds of years to raise it is this beauty. And say that they have restored it stone after stone? We feel that the time is stopped, this leads to meditation so the beauty and the silence you enthralled. A visit like that marks a person.
