SILENTIUM


Via monachorum.
This path leads to Karthaus, the village that was once a Carthusian monastery.


The monks' silence still mysteriously haunts the place.


The path to Karthaus, an old pilgrims' route, is marked with quotations. Visitors are encouraged to listen to the silence between the birdsang, the rushing of water and the distant traffic. A rare sound experience in a world of noise.




The fountain in the village of Karthaus / Certosa.
