Religious Site
The Certosa di Trisulti is a monastery in Collepardo, province of Frosinone, central Italy. It is located on the slopes of Monte Rotonaria, a peak of the Monti Ernici, at 825 meters above the sea level. It was consecrated in 1211, becoming a national monument in 1873.HistoryA first Benedictine abbey was founded in the site in 996 by St. Dominic Abbot: some remains can be seen today not far from the current building. The latter was erected starting from 1204, on a more accessible location, by will of Pope Innocent III, who assigned it to the Carthusians. The abbey church, dedicated to St. Bartholomew, was consecrated in 1211.The name Trisulti could derive from Latin tres saltibus, meaning "At the three jumps": this was the name of a castle of the baronal Colonna family which commanded the three passes ("jumps") leading to Abruzzo, Rome and Ciociaria.The complex was enlarged and modified several times in the following centuries. The current appearance date to an essentially Baroque restoration.DescriptionThe abbey is surrounded by a massive line of walls. The entrance has a bust of St. Bartholomew by Jacopo Lo Duca, a pupil of Michelangelo Buonarroti; this leads to a central square where is a Romanesque-Gothic guesthouse, commonly known as the "Palace of Innocent III" (including a portico, a terrace and a library of 36,000 volumes), and the church of St. Bartholomew.

  • Gorgeous place to visit, well looked after and maintained. Beautiful Pharmacy and grounds, excellent chocolate and liquor that you can buy in the little shop inside. Hopefully this place remains unchanged.

  • Immersed in the greenery of centuries-old forests lies this famous and majestic monastery, founded in 1204 by Pope Innocent III and entrusted by 1208, to the Carthusian monks (hence the name "Certosa"). In 1947 they were replaced by the present Cistercian monks of the Congregation of Casamari. Inside it is possible to visit the Church with precious works of art and the old pharmacy of the 17th century. (photo below). The Charterhouse is a national monument and also houses a large library with 25,000 volumes. Not to be missed

  • There are no words to describe the beauty of this place. Charming, quiet, peace and serenity, it's like a fairy tale ... well maintained and well cared for, all clean ... the garden is wonderful, artistic, I would have been here for hours on end. There is a small pharmacy, is charming, seems to be catapulted into another era, there are some beautiful frescos, the counter of those years and all medicines that were used since ... the Church is majestic, is not very big, but it's nice and then outside, right next to the church there is a small door where the whole there is a fabulous Nativity scene, I think the nicest I've seen so far. Just open the door, the lights, the Christmas music and all the characters begin to move ... I would have been here for hours, is a jewel, a paradise, deserves to be seen. The thing that left me more appalled at is that admission is free ... This gives even more merit, others have profited.

  • A little gem, not only for the pharmacy, but also for the view and atmosphere. Cute animated nativity display and also the cloister.

  • I was informed by a colleague that the Abbey, unfortunately, is owned by Italian State and that before long the friars must leave. It is to imagine what will happen. I hope in DOING. It is so or have I misunderstood? It's a wealth of unspoilt beauty and out of this world polluted by scandals, Grimes and business interests, religious and historical interest ... Who knows more please review ... Thanks Gabriel
