The restitution of the residency will take the form of an exhibition in the Bugade and the prison of the Chartreuse of Villeneuve-lès-Avignon, located less than an hour from the E22 headquarter.

The Chartreuse Notre-Dame-du-Val-de-Bénédiction is an ancient Carthusian monastery dating from the Middle Ages, located in Villeneuve-lès-Avignon, in the Gard department in the Occitanie region.
The Chartreuse is the subject of multiple protections under the Historic Monuments and now largely restored. It seduces visitors with its harmonious proportions, the softness of its cloisters and the breach of light through a collapsed apse of its church.
