  • I've been there so many times, she's beautiful, among other things has a particular historical value, the atmosphere is very intimate and invites contemplation. The surrounding landscape is very relaxing. In essence it is a place for those who understand something of life, those who do not understand a damn thing she's better at home.

  • At the end of a winding road you are faced with this wonder. Above the door there is a grotesque figure (I would say a devil) indicates that one must be silent. We are greeted by a father of the consolata missionaries who leads us to the discovery of the Charterhouse: the first church. On the walls is carved a star stuck in the ground. ; The Capitular Hall (only place in which the monks could talk) with a very low ceiling and a single window. In the chapel you can see a holy water stoup (mistaken for a small sink). In the graveyard is also buried a woman the Marquise Mezzavacca mother of two monks he left all his property to the Certosa. You can also see a "milking system machine" (condottura the milk from the nearby church of the Charterhouse Correria located about 1 Km downstream). The Charterhouse was built using local stone called "the glass of the Madona". Unfortunately the construction over the years has been damaged and revisions: from "theft" by Napoleon silver Bell (currently resides in the Louvre) to the demolition of part of the walls for the scenery that was used as a hotel. All of these things, including the anecdotes, we were said by an amusing missionary who made our visit really special. It seems that in the old days the monks could only eat fish. So in order to eat the meat they had devised this ploy: they threw a cow into the river and then went out, would ya pretending it was a fish. A heartfelt thanks to our guide! Visit not to be missed! Recommended for large and small!

  • A place that shows how an architectural structure built according to certain canons can positively emotionally and spiritually. the Council in particular to stay a long time sat in the ancient Church, among the stones and bricks that compose it, letting the silence to come into themselves and there remain quiet.
