in 1204, the Carthusian monastery of Valbonne is located at the heart of
an exceptional forest in the Provence hills. Up until 1901 a community
of monks lived in this monastery, following the rules of Saint Bruno.
|From the Conventual Church to the Chapel of Relics,
through the Small Cloister to the Grand Cloister and
after a visit to a monk's cell, one can imagine the life of the
Carthusian Order within the site, and discover their universe
of silence and solitude.
