The former monastery of the Carthusian Order, was built at the turn of the fourteenth and fifteenth century .Turned out gothic- baroque building (now the Collegiate Church) is a showcase of Kartuzy and most valuable monument of the city. The temple has a rich interior, among which are the most valuable Baroque choir stalls, Renaissance high altar, the seventeenth-century paintings by the famous painter Herman Han, and richly ornamented cordovans (leather lining) adorning the walls of the chancel. The characteristic architectural feature of the church is an eighteenth-century roof, resembling a coffin. In the vicinity of the temple stands the Gothic refectory (now an art gallery) and a small brick house (called a hermitage), which was once the dwelling for monks. Among a dozen such houses, have retained only this one. Legend has it that he visited the King Zygmunt III Waza. Monastery church is recognized today as one of the most sacred objects of Kashubia. In 2010, the collegiate Kartuska enriched with its replica in scale. Thanks to the blind by touch can also admire this extraordinary building. The replica is in the Golden Chapel.
