Info

Browse through a remarkable building and discover the identity of the Bauges mountain range! Testimonials, videos and models provide you with the personality of a territory that is now a Regional Nature Park and labelled a UNESCO Global Geopark.

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.
