Chartreuse Villeneuve les Avignon

In 1127, the order of the Carthusian monks is born. From the very start, the community splits into two groups: the fathers live a life of prayers in their cells, whereas the brothers take the charge of the necessities of a domestic life and The La Chartreuse of Villeneuve les Avignon took shape in the centuries that followed and It will finally be achieved in 1649 with a baroque luxuriance, not very Carthusian, but it reflects the taste of the time. The site is open to the public and a museum nowadays.
