Certosa di Trisulti, Collepardo
(4.8/5 based on 240+ 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.

  • I was for the first time in this monastery and I highly recommend it. This gem is located in Collepardo. The road is paved although in winter is not exactly the best. I had the pleasure to visit the Church, the antique pharmacy, permanent Nativity etc. The whole thing could be emphasized more but unfortunately this is a story that is repeated too often in our country. Still worth seeing.

  • Built around 1200, full of history not only related to the Catholic religion, monument to be protected. The cloister is relaxing, you can stay to hear the roar of the fountain surrounded by a botanical garden with specimens of Taxus baccata (yew) are difficult to meet. The presence of some Cistercian monks devoted to disclosure facilitates the visit. The majestic church with frescoes evoking, the pharmacy is not far behind. Not to be missed.

  • This monastery of Trisulti is a place where his great past but where this is in semi abandonment, even though you see the sacrifices to keep it in a decent State. It is a place where the glorious past is King. Judge not the hair but the place in its entirety so you will not be disappointed. Worth the trip. Of course if you had the culture of keep and treat what you have would be a beautiful monastery. Remember to visit the little church of the MADONNA DELLE CESE, thirty minute walk from the certosa.

  • 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
