La Cartuja Monastery


Description

The Carthusian Monastery shows the splendour of Andalusian Baroque. Three centuries passed from the time building work on it began until it finished; that is why, although the initial project was medieval, it turned out to be a great example of Baroque style. La Cartuja was inhabited until 1836. A Venetian glass door leads onto the Sacrarium, located behind the Main Altar. The Sacristy is considered the crowning work of Late Spanish Baroque and has a skirting made of marble from Lanjarón. The decoration inside the Monastery is outstanding, with marbles, columns and carved wood. Within its walls, it holds a valuable collection of paintings by artists such as Sánchez Cotán, Bocanegra and Carducho, amongst others.
