The decline of the Chartreuse de la Verne
Over the six centuries of its spiritual influence, the Chartreuse de la Verne quickly became the owner of an expanse of land of more than 7,413 acres (3,000 ha), thanks to numerous donations or purchases. The estate mostly consisted of woodlands of the Maures Massif but also pastures, arable land, and even saltworks. In 1790, after the French Revolution, all the monastery's properties were seized and inventoried. In 1792 the buildings and land were sold as a national property. A long period of disaffection and abandonment then lasted until the classification of the Chartreuse de la Verne as a Historical Monument in 1921. The complex was listed under the vestiges in the forest entry, with the exception of the farm buildings and the main courtyard that they surround.
