Yesterday & Today

The Chartreuse du Liget in Music

the new musical meeting place in South Touraine

On the impulse of the Adour Association, a new festival "La Chartreuse du Liget en Musiques Hier & Aujourd’hui" was born in the heart of rural Loches.


What distinguishes the festival from others is its program offering classical music repertoires jointly with musical compositions.


The association is fertile with one door opening onto another; the new and the old in happy matrimony for the better.


We invite international artists. Excellence & passion of sound unite the guest artists.
The anchoring of this new annual summer festival is a real bonus for music and the artists who perform it, for the public, for our cultural heritage and finally the promise of further dynamism in our region.

And best for all
The festival’s ambition is to address a wide audience by ensuring a stringent and original program with an accessible price for all.


The main 18th century barn is converted into a concert hall.

 The Chartreuse du Liget is a former Carthusian monastery in the heart of South Touraine. Founded at the end of the 12th century by Henri II Plantagenet, King of England and Count of Anjou, it is the only Carthusian monastery present in Touraine. As is the Carthusian rule, La Chartreuse consists of a high house in Liget and a low house in Corroirie. The whole of Liget also has an isolated chapel in a clearing in the forest of Loches, where the first monks who founded the hermitage settled.
