The path to the former Chartreuse is marked as one of the Owl paths. It was a bit difficult to follow in places, perhaps because some of the owl plaques have come loose. However it is well worth the effort if you enjoy art. The...More

Interesting remains of a mediaeval palace situated in the grounds of a hospital complex. It's one of the offshoots of the owl's trail through the arquebus gardens, but be prepared for the very long walk to get there. It's well posted. Nip up to the...More

It's about a 15-minute walk from the train station, along a major street clogged with trucks: unpleasant. You get to the grounds of the hospital, built on the site of the former Chartreuse abbey. In a courtyard, with a protective wooden and glass structure, you...More
