  • Mountain location


Located in the former accommodation block of La Chartreuse monastery, dating from the 12th C, are several rooms that record the Park’s cultural heritage and rural way of life.

The Charterhouse Heritage House, is a fascinating insight into the Bauges Mountains ! Stroll around the rooms and arcades of these unique monastery ruins on an audio guide. You can sense the atmosphere which makes a dramatic contrast with life today. The past is brought to life through, touch screen and audio interactive models and films. The exhibition features the history of human settlement in the mountains, agro-pastoral societies and the Iron Age. Part of the site gives a closer behind-the-scenes look at a monastery life at the time and how it has changed over the years. Savoie heritage guides are also available for groups on request or for visits during in the winter and summer holidays. There is a visitor centre and an on-site shop.
