Issued on: Modified:
France's Chartreuse mountain range is one of the most majestic places in the Alps. A thousand years ago, monks chose it to set up their order and made it their home. Today, 29 monks still live here and produce the famous Chartreuse liqueur, which supports the monastery. Its recipe is a closely guarded secret. As if immersed in an eternal winter, the Chartreuse mountains are home to many mysteries. FRANCE 24 takes you to discover them.
