Artist's Description

Ste-Croix-en-Jarez, a village not at all like others…

Located at the heart of the “Parc Naturel Régional du Pilat”, this village is almost entirely enclosed in the well maintained buildings of a Carthusian monastery of the XIIIth century.

A community of monks lived here, following the rule of St Bruno up to the French Revolution ( 1789) . The monks were then evicted and their properties were sold. Some families of the surroundings bought the monk’s cells and settled there. The monastery became a village, but fortunately the buildings remained almost unchanged.

It attracts many visitors and is one of the most beautiful villages in France. It is possible to visit it all the year and guided tours are available on reservation; they allow to see interesting spots like : church, wall paintings of XIVth century, monastery kitchen and bakery, and one restored cell.
