Last Saturday we went to Church Saint-Hugues-de-Chartreuse which holds the stunning paintings of Arcabas. It was a modern twist on stories of the Ten Commandments, and beautiful portraits of the Bible. It raised a lot of eyebrows when it was first shown, but now it is regarded as a precious gem of the French Alpes.
After our tour of the church our small group went to St Pierre de Chartreuse, Musée Chartreuse, and the Monastère. They were fascinating. When we got to the Monastère we climbed to the top of the hill, overlooking the small village, and sat there. We sat there, in silence, and lost track of time. The stillness of that place made me fill completely at peace.
