Frescoes in the Chartreuse Monastery in Villeneuve les Avigon
Languedoc-Roussillon
These frescoes were painted by Matteo Giovanetti in the 14th century. They are part of the visit of the Chartreuse Monastery built in 1536, that really is worth a visit on its own. You go through a maze of corridors, rooms, strairs, old stone and gardens. Nearby is an impressive medieval castle from which you get a very nice view of the Monastery and the Palais des Papes beyond the Rhone river, in the city of Avignon.
