Religious Site Tourist Spot
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.

  • To know that there is need to know that it exists. It's not on everyone's lips as the highest ranking sisters in lazio, but definitely deserves a lot of attention because once you enter here, it will seem as if time has stopped at approximately 1300. By pointing out the old pharmacy, beautiful architecture of the place and the huge backyard that looks out over the Valley. This place puts much peace on you, believe me, it's worth a visit.

  • Surrounded by woods, is not achieved easily: you have to go looking for it but once you arrive you will be fascinated especially by the sense of peace and silence. The old pharmacy is a gem and alone is worth the visit while the cloister is uncared for and the Church closed for restoration.

  • It's worth visiting the Certosa di Trisulti, surrounded by a wonderful mountain scenery (forest of Ecio), where silence broken only by the rustling of the leaves of the ancient oaks, beeches and pines. Well preserved monastery offers visitors a wide range of environments to visit: the Church of San Bartolomeo (1798) dedicated to the Virgin, the cloister, the Romanesque/Gothic guesthouse, the old pharmacy of the eighteenth century. where Snake venoms were kept and the herbs, the church square with its fountains, the garden with its centuries-old boxwood hedges. Visit highly recommended!

  • 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.
