Welcome to Parc Naturel Régional de Chartreuse


Behind its outdoorsy present-day diversions – hiking trails, dozens of caves and a dinky ski centre – unfolds a mysterious history. This wilderness was dubbed the ‘desert’ by monks of the Carthusian Order, who settled here in 1084 and continue to pursue their silent, meditative routine in the Grande Chartreuse monastery. The monks still keep their secrets close…in particular the formula for the world-famous Chartreuse liqueurs.
