Certosa di Trisulti, Collepardo

(4.8/5 based on 260+ 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.

  • Come back after many years was like diving into a past that seemed forgotten. Two whole years, lived by a seminarian, studying, the dormitory and refectory, the snow, the walks around and searching for mushrooms, the trout, the Aviary with the Eagle, pharmacy and liquor preparation, the scent of juniper berries and of gentian roots. Everything remained motionless, fixed in memory.

  • Excellent destination for a family trip to rediscover a place frozen in time. Surrounded by the majestic stands, visible from the street. Within the many works of art have an air of mystique to the place. You can visit the ancient Pharmacy and taste the typical chocolates and liquors of the friars, the famous Imperial drops, with possible tasting. The place around offers numerous attractions and restaurants serving local cuisine.

  • in the mountains of ciociaria, a few kilometres from Chalmers. To see the old Pharmacy and library, as well as the cloister and the Church. Nearby you can make interesting walks, including one to the Hermitage of San Domenico.

  • 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
