Certosa di Trisulti, Collepardo
(4.8/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • The Charterhouse is definitely worth visiting, too bad there is a guide, however it is not to be missed. The pharmacy is definitely a place to see and the crib is also very nice.

  • In a silence that we're not accustomed to leaving a narrow road through the Woods we found ourselves in this impressive Hermitage that exudes immense spirituality. From the terrace there is a panorama at sunset that seems to be the only inhabitants of the Earth. The Chapel, fountains, gardens with the mazes all beautiful, but a special mention deserves the antica farmacia dei monaci with all products used in ancient times. Before you leave you can buy really good balsamic chocolate, candy and amaro centerbe.

  • Surrounded by a beautiful forest, the Certosa is impressive. You can see a beautiful old Pharmacy and beautiful gardens of boxwood pruned. Don't miss the spectacular animated crib

  • 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
