  • Coffee Bookstore inside is a little place of heaven. Very warm and drinks at very attractive prices. He must find him but don't miss! Excellent small biscuits. The Interior is very nice, especially if it's cool outside.

  • Building beautiful, huge, deserted at this time, where we could circulate freely, experience the magical acoustic vaults and rooms, to represent an austere and silent, monastic life punctuated with prayers, bells and songs... Few explanations, but not necessarily need. See, the prison of the monks, when they had the misfortune to break the silence, to accept a small gift or other bad things! With holes for rooms follow the office from their cell without to see the officiating... The highest point is, the chapel painted by Giovannetti, echoing with the chapels of the Palace of the popes: a wonder. The cloisters as well as threads of vaults, very well restored, cells (small houses with a floor) and many gardens... Here too, take the ticket with the fort Saint André, where you can admire the chartreuse from the top.
