Our 2003 travel through Italy our friends Chis and Carmen Grant captured us walking along the chiostro.

The certosa is an example of Southern Baroque (17-18th Century) architecture. Construction actually started in the 14th Century and was completed sometime in the 19th Century.

We stayed nearby at the Agriturismo La Fonte, which was a real find. Friendly owners, good clean accomodations. There on the property are the remains of the early Christian baptisrey of Sazn Giovanni in Fonte from the 5th-6th Century. The font is fed by a spring and the Maria and Michela have a set of trout breeding ponds.
