Certosa di Trisulti, Collepardo

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.

    Really beautiful the Pharmacy Museum (well kept). Otherwise it's one of many beautiful places from an architectural point of view that we have in Italy. Too bad the Church was closed when I was there I.

    Completely accessible, from the Museum of Pharmacy (surcharge) at the beautiful cloister, the Manger characteristic to the square with fountains from which flows fresh water and refreshing. The Church at present is however closed x restoration but this did not detract from the beauty of the visit also because you have a beautiful view from the balcony of the square across the verdant Valley below, bella!

    We go there often when we are around to make some purchases in small workshop: candy, chocolate, Royal Jelly or liquor. It's nice to visit, nice, there's an old pharmacy with special furniture (spectacular!), unfortunately the Church have never gone down since we came always shortly before closing. So check for the timetable. You can also eat at a small restaurant in mind. Out not far away there are the tables by pick nic. Some advice? Bring your own containers to fill with drinking water from the fountain in front of the certosa!

  • Visit the Certosa is a unique experience, in a breathtaking setting. The pharmacy must be visited absolutely but also the choir of the Church is to see. Outside you can see the gardens, some still cultivated

  • The monastery is situated in the middle of Woods surrounded by majestic mountains with beautiful views, especially if you follow the path from Casamari. The monastery holds two gems, the old Pharmacy and the Church. Lovely and very unique garden with boxwood hedges you with animal shapes

  • Beautiful monastery, well maintained and with various small and large attractions. From the cloisters to the Pharmacy and even a very nice crib in motion. Interesting bushes treated, perhaps, from "Edward Scissorhands"

  • Fantastic place, rich in history and it deserves to be visited in all its parts, of course open to the public.
