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.Work out when and for how long to visit Certosa di Trisulti and other Collepardo attractions using our handy Collepardo trip planner.

The pharmacy is a small gem, as well as the church choir with the wooden stalls, each with a different from others.

I don't understand how you can do to have a beauty like this and not advertise it free when you pay to go and visit the places that not even the tenth part of this. Beautiful pharmacy with frescoes meticulously kept. This beautiful place with the air we breathe and local restaurants are worth a day trip for the inhabitants of neighbouring regions
To visit. It is located in the municipality of Collepardo (Frosinone). A national monument since 1873. It is surrounded by woods and terrific show is see it between the autumn colors.
Wonderful place and very impressive too, because of its location, literally surrounded by greenery. Inside the monastery, the old pharmacy is nothing short of fantastic. Highly recommended for a trip out of town.
One of the places that in my humble opinion should be seen and visited. The brothers who acted as hosts unfortunately there are no longer so you could visit only a small part of the Charterhouse and participate in the Holy Mass. However, unofficial reports, management of the Charterhouse should pass into other hands and everything is desirable because it should open to the public the entire underside of the monastery that would prove to be much more interesting.
In the middle of a beautiful valley magnificently preserved involves every visitor who enters into the spirit of the sacredness of the place
