    Visiting the monastery he is catapulted into the monastic life of the Carthusian order. A place worth visiting. The interiors of the guest area and the Church are stunning. The main cloister and the staircase are impressive, but the grounds are not treated as they should. I understand the droughts and the enormous spaces to manage, but see the grass fallow or burned immediately jumps and negatively to the eye and this is not fair for the value of this Chartreuse. I hope that in the future there are more funds or that are handled better, in order to safeguard this heritage.

    The monastery is dedicated to St. Lorenzo because xkè already existed a church to the Saint, subsequently destroyed x build the Charterhouse. Features a beautiful archaeological museum. I finally understood the exclamation: make a cobbler! Careful and meticulous, that requires patience, attention to detail and in the thumbnails. La certosa, a hermit, closed place in rigour, austerity and confidentiality. Surely a place of worship and culture. Lavish Baroque monumental among the largest in Europe and a world heritage site. The monks produced wine, olive oil, fruit and vegetables x their livelihood and x on external trade. Inside there is a bar, a souvenir shop and comfortable shoes are recommended. The only flaw and the neglect of the gardens that were once lush.

    Place of great cultural, artistic and historical value. A real wonder, it was truly a great experience to have visited (even if only partially because not all open to the public) ... A must of course book a guide and everything will be more charming. PS: take care of outdoor space (Central cloister and not only with tall grass, bordered with the hurdles unwatchable and totally uncalled for) ... at times a ingiustificabile...ma carelessness goes vista buts and no ifs!
