Certosa di Trisulti, Collepardo
Categories: Sacred & Religious Sites, Tourist Spots
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.See Certosa di Trisulti and all Collepardo has to offer by arranging your trip with our Collepardo itinerary builder.

Non faccio la solita recensione perché la Certosa di Trisulti rischia di chiudere dopo 8 secoli di storia. I tre monaci cistercensi che ancora vi risiedono , di cui il più giovane ha 79 anni e il più ... read more »I don't do the usual review because the Certosa di Trisulti threatens to quit after 8 centuries of history. The three Cistercian monks who still reside there, of which the youngest is 79 years old and the eldest 90, no longer able to manage yourself the property belonging to the Ministry of culture Appears, from what we were told, there are young Cistercians to send in aid and so you will lose not only the history but also the artwork and the high religious value of the monastery built in 1200 and elevated to a national monument in 1873. Shut the facility, however, does make the death and it would be a shame that another monument is intended to support the monks, to date, there are only a few volunteers, I come back and help the monks ordinary chores, how else would they do? But the volunteers alone are not enough and the monks, though elderly, I am the soul--tell us-and they are the ones who manage to stanch the neglect. Once closed could become stage of vandals and thieves. It then started a race against time to finalise negotiations with the community of monks or nuns who could express interest.show original

Gabriele MariI 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 Gabrielshow original
