Grande Chartreuse Monastery

In the hearth of the Chartreuse Mountains, this unique site is just 2 km from the famous monastery founded by St Bruno in 1084.

It was an idea of the monks themselves, and allows you to better understand the mystery of the Carthusian Order, its 900 year history, the monks' way of life and more. The present museum, located in the ancient annexe of the Chartreux Monastery, provides visitors with a wealth of insights into the monks' human and spiritual adventure.

Documents, everyday objects as well as films and audiovisuals material all enable you to discover the Monastery as if you were there and to share in the faith and emotion of today's monks. This is an invitation to discover the "Great Silence".
