    The history of the village of Reposoir is closely linked to that of the Chartreuse, founded in the 12th century. The religious institution, now the Carmelite Monastery, is a former Charterhouse, founded in 1151 by Aymon de Faucigny to accommodate monks of the order of Saint-Bruno. The whole is classified as a historical monument.
