The peace and beauty of this place (including the gardens and green spaces) is breathtaking. The architecture (by Rosetti) is so well proportioned and harmonious that it lifts the spirit. We went there on bicycles and had the place to ourselves. Only downside was that the church was closed so we couldn't see the art inside

We appreciate the atmosphere and the garden. 15min by walk from the castle. If you are visiting Ferrara, I suggest to recover for half an hour here, then continue to visit this nice city.

The outside of the Certosa is anot as elaborate as the Certosa in Milan. The church as being cleaned so the inside was stripped bare for cleaning. We went to the cemetery because distant family member is buried there. Out side is very pleasant

We ended up here by chance, and what a surprise! This place is totally worth a visit. We were there on a sunday afternoon in july, Ferrara was almost empty and somehow magic.

Probably worth a visit, but personally I felt rather overwhelmed. Many of the Ferrarese lived quite long lives, including one lady of 104. It was a shame that the Certosa itself was not open, due to possible earthquake damage.

This was a lovely, quiet place to visit and walk around, listen to the birds and see places were whole generations of Italians are buried and remembered. Wide open spaces, many cloisters, some still closed when we visited.

Saw this from the air from a hotair balloon ride and had to go see what it looked like from the ground. Whole family historys here and, although the cloisters were closed due to recent earthquake activity, it was so interesting and not a bit macabre looking at the way the Italians revere their forebears.

It looks great but the cloisters are closed off after the earthquake so you have plenty to see but not as much access to a chronological timeline as I would have liked.
