Overview

The construction of the Certosa, one of the largest monasteries in Europe with a total area exceeding 50,000 square meters, is promoted and financed starting from 1306 by Tommaso Sanseverino, Count of Marsico, on the original nucleus of an ancient grància - a structure with the function of a farm. The construction of the complex follows the pattern based on the clear distinction of two large functional areas: "low house" [domus inferior] which included the workplaces - warehouses, granaries, stalls, laundries -, destined for the conversi, friars who did not receive religious orders, in charge of manual services, the material subsistence of the community and "high house" [domus superior], clearly separate, is the area of residence of the fathers, the realm of silence, of meditation and of enclosure.
