This place is full of history and beauty. It is a working monastery, they make a great selection of liquors, creams and honey. If you arrive at the right time you can get a tour by one of the monks.

Whenever I come here, I enjoy the tranquillity and the exceptional architecture of the Certosa of Galluzzo. Excellent products on sale in the Certosa store, too.
