Trip Planner: Europe / Italy / Lazio / Province of Frosinone / Collepardo / Historic Sites / Certosa di Trisulti
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.See Certosa di Trisulti and all Collepardo has to offer by arranging your trip with our Collepardo itinerary builder.

Ermes tuonVisit 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
Paola AlberighiThe 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
Ottavio BeccegatoBeautiful 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"
Fabio BuccilliFantastic place, rich in history and it deserves to be visited in all its parts, of course open to the public.
Paola TrinaThe Church is being restored from 18 05 2017 until 30 09 2017. what a pity to get out there and find the sign
