Certosa di Trisulti, Collepardo

(4.8/5 based on 280+ 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.

  • Drive along a road through the Woods and you find yourself in silence in a majestic Charterhouse. An opportunity not to be missed if you are accompanied by your guide, during the week you can book a visit to the library always accompanied by qualified personnel. The pharmacy is painted with trompe l'oeil you will find original containers of medicines, try an inscription of the sator square and unveil the meaning. When you enter the Church of s. Bartolomeo admire the frescoes, you will find 2 cases containing ancient relics of the Knights of the Crusades and the choruses ligneous if interested listening to mass by now there are only 2 brothers. Stroll the cloister and good meditation. before leaving the Chartreuse tasting liqueurs. The best time spring summer fall.

  • The Certosa di Trisulti, that like any Certosa care every detail in the gardens and in the architecture of its buildings in this case conceals much more precious treasure, an ancient pharmacy 1700, with vintage equipment and containers. Great atmosphere inside of ancient wisdom and enchantment, but it breaks my heart to see what in the past has been reached. A place to visit in silence, focus, with a camera and with the eyes of a child, open to amazement. A magic before my eyes

  • Very nice the old Pharmacy and the crib. Not bad is the Church with the wooden benches that can be used by the faithful and the ceiling fresco

  • 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
