Portugese Carthusian video

Hat tip to The Muniment Room for this video of the Portugese Carthusians at Évora. Ttony gives the link to the Portugese blog A Casa de Sarto which posted the video and translates their text for us:
"The Charterhouse of Évora: expelled in 1834 by Jacobin revolutionarism, the Carthusians returned to their Portuguese home in 1960."
The voiceover on the video clip is Portugese but the scenes from Carthusian life are worth watching.
