    When will recover from the guides to make visits rather that multimedia tools that don't tell anything and give no idea of what was happening at that time here in abbeys? Visit sad, or even uninteresting...

    One of the largest Carthusian monastery with church, 3 cloisters, chapel with frescoes and gardens. The monastery suffered his renovation actively while but in the 20th century to take heavy damage, the revolution. It is a place of peace and tranquility.
