La Grande Chartreuse, founded by Saint Bruno in 1084, is an unmissable destination. If the monastery remains a place of prayer, the museum enlightens you on the life of the monks withdrawn in solitude and silence.

Living in solitude and in silence, the Carthusians cannot open their monastery to visitors. But what is their story? How does a Carthusian live today?

La Correrie de la Grande Chartreuse, museum of France, former home of the Carthusian brothers, is dedicated to bearing witness to their life and their history.
