 (Catalan:)

El rei Alfons d'Aragó, envià dos
cavallers per tot Catalunya a la
recerca d'un lloc adient per fundar
una cartoixa. Sota la serra del
Montsant varen trobar un pastoret.
Ell els manifestà que en aquell lloc
s'havia reproduït el somni de Jacob,
és a dir, l'escala que pujava fins
al cel. amb àngels anant i venint.
Els cavallers consideraran el
lloc adequat per bastir-hi una
cartoixa, que s'anomenaria naturalment
SCALA DEI

(English translation:)
King Alfonso de Aragon sent two knights throughout Catalonia looking for a suitable place to found a monastery. Under the Sierra del Montsant they found a shepherd. He told them that in that place, the dream of Jacob had been reproduced, that is, there would be a ladder there that climbed to the sky, with angels coming and going. The knights considered it the right place to build a monastery, calling it naturally "Scala Dei" (i.e., God's Ladder).
