The History
The foundations of this monumental Carthusian monastery were laid in 1396 and it was consecrated in 1497. The monastery represented a valuable religious, economic and cultural asset at the time, as the Carthusian monks enhanced agricultural productivity through the use of water-meadows that increased the production of grass throughout the year. They preserved food by keeping it in underground storages filled with ice. The complex of the Certosa di Pavia Gra-Car (Gratiarum Carthusia – The Monastery of Saint Mary of Grace) comprises a monastery and a sanctuary. It was built by Gian Galeazzo Visconti. Its architectural styles range from the late Italian Gothic to the Renaissance, involving architects and artists such as Bernardo da Venezia, Giovanni Solari and his son Guinifort, Giovanni Antonio Amadeo, Cristoforo Lombardo and others.
