Take time for quiet reflection at Musee de la Grande Chartreuse, 2 km (1.2 mi) from Grand Chartreuse monastery, where visitors and motor vehicles are not allowed access. Monks and nuns built the museum to inspire future generations and educate people about this isolated community. Exhibits and an audio guide (available in English) inform you about the monks' way of life. The monastery is supported by the sale of its Chartreuse liqueur, produced since the 18th century.
