"Stat Crux dum volvitur orbis" (The stable cross while the world turns). The motto of the Carthusian Order seems to be a tight synthesis of the more than three hundred years that the Carthusian monks dedicated to  to the construction of the Royal Monastery of La Cartuja in Granada, located on the outskirts of the city. The world took many turns since 1513, when the the construction of a convent began in 1513. Visitors can trace the evolution of the different artistic tastes that European architecture experienced during that long period and, at the same time, to appreciate the solitude of the Carthusian way of life. The monastery's sacristy, a prime example of the Spanish of the Spanish Baroque, is an obligatory stop on any visit. In 1835, as a result of Mendizábal's Disentailment, the  religious order was forced to abandon the building, This was. the beginning of a period of decadence of the monument, which was only halted after it was declared a historic-artistic place in 1932. Since the 1970s, the monastery has solemnly presided over the Cartuja University Campus.
