  • This is the site to visit, preferably guided tour to understand the history and the life of the monks. The buildings are very well preserved, the 2 beautiful cloisters.

  • Gothic style, it is a gem. Huge, worth a visit after a morning market at Villefranche, a hearty breakfast, to stretch my legs.

  • Very well preserved monastery. If possible, take advantage of the guided tour. Visit lively and interesting, with children aged 9, 13 and 16.

  • The buildings of the monastery were purchased by the commune of villefranche after the revolution and used as a hospital which is a very good state of conservation of the buildings and furniture. So far part of the buildings is always used as a hospital. Very interesting guided tour explaining the origin and the various buildings of the monastery as well as life Carthusian. A must see.

  • The Chartreuse, property classified in the public hospital of the town of Villefranche de Rouergue, is a former monastery of the religious order of the Carthusians. This site is extraordinarily well-preserved. It helps to understand the monastic life according to the rigorous rule of St. Bruno. The site can be visited.
