What to expect

Experience the monastic life up close through this guided tour of Certosa di San Lorenzo, the second-largest Carthusian monastery in Europe. Begin your experience admiring the magnificent baroque facade of the building, framed by stables, workshops, cellars and even a pharmacy. Continue through the cloister of the Foresteria, chapels and sacristy. In the church, you'll closely admire the well-preserved ancient altars embellished by polychrome scagliola decorations and mother of pearl inserts.

Pass the Hall of Bells, the Chapter Hall and the Treasury Hall to reach the cloister, a truly unique architectural structure made up of two orders of porticoes and 84 arches. Immerse yourself in the typical atmosphere of the Carthusian monks' cuisine visiting the Refrectory and conclude your experience walking the famous white marble spiral staircase that leads to the library of the Reggia del Silenzio.
