Founded in the 14th century by the fifth Avignon Pope, Innocent VI, the Carthusian Monastery is one of the order’s largest in Europe, with its church, three cloisters, chapel with frescoes by Matteo Giovannetti, gardens and 24 monks’ cells. Innocent VI's mausoleum is in the church. 3D devices in the Saint-Bruno chapel and the chapel of the Dead reveal the former church's décor or invisible frescoes.
