PowerPoint Presentation:

Certosa di Pavia Gra-Car (Gratiarum Chartusia = la Certosa delle Grazie) is a monastery and complex in Lombardy, northern Italy, situated near a small town of the same name in the Province of Pavia, 8 km north of Pavia. Built in 1396-1495, it was once located on the border of a large hunting park belonging to the Visconti family of Milan, of which today only scattered parts remain. It is one of the largest monasteries in Italy. All over the monastery you'll find the Gra-Car sign, designating the original name of the Charterhouse of Pavia (Gratiarum Chartusia, Charterhouse of the Graces). Certosa is the Italian name for a house of the cloistered monastic order of Carthusians founded by St. Bruno in 1044 at Grande Chartreuse. The Certosa is renowned for the exuberance of its architecture, in both the Gothic and Renaissance styles, and for its collection of artworks which are particularly representative of the region.
