Did you know?

In 1080, Bruno and six companions asked the bishop of Grenoble for an area of wasteland in the mountains of his diocese. He built a small retreat in St Pierre de Chartreuse which became the birthplace of a major meditative order. This monastery is completely devoted to silence and to the monks' prayer and is not open for visits.

The community can host anyone wishing to experience a retreat in a Carthusian monk's cell.
