Chartreuse de Bonpas

A legendary site

The Chartreuse de Bonpas is a historic 12th century site in Caumont-sur-Durance, 10 minutes from Avignon.
This medieval building has recently undergone a spectacular restoration.

The Chartreuse de Bonpas was a fortified monastery in the 12th century, situated at the border between the Comtat Venaissin and Provence at a place of passage across the Durance River once called "malus passus" (“mauvais pas” or bad step). It was renamed "bonus passus" (“bon pas” or good step) after the monks had carried out the necessary work to improve the crossing of the Durance at that spot.

A multilingual, interactive audiovisual presentation (in French, English, German and Japanese) divulges all the secrets of this legendary site. You can then tour the French-style gardens, the chapel, the Great Cellar and the Reading Room.

The visitor is completely free to take the time he or she needs to discover this enchanting place.
