Certosa di Trisulti, Collepardo

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.

  • Absolute wonder. We visited the monastery along with the caves of Collepardo, Antullo and Casamari Abbey: great! The Cathedral was closed for restoration, but we were happy to see the pharmacy, the refectory, the two cloisters and permanent Christmas crib. The biggest surprise was acquainted with Mr. Gianni Dell'Uomo, dealing brilliantly from the library and who knows everything! Going back soon.

  • Beautiful monastery surrounded by a mystical and mysterious atmosphere ... as you approach along the mountain roads, it seems like a great monastery split level, when you visit seems to be erected on a piano solo ... free tour schedules at scheduled times.

  • Go go go! Is a beautiful, hidden and for this romantic and charming. At 2 steps from Anagni. Beautiful frescoes in the pharmacy within the village. The mysterious and ancient monastery with manicured gardens adjoining the Palladian church. Sin is not much visited. I recommend everyone to go and visit it. One of the most beautiful places visited in Italy. I will definitely be back to visit it

  • Lovely place to visit. Guided tour. Perhaps too a quota since it doesn't enjoy the essence of the place. Marketing of visiting time doesn't let the time to surrender to silence of the place upon entering the panorama visible from the square of the Loggia of the Pope. Ticket price still €5. We will see rising like the caves of Collepardo

  • Aside from the picturesque Woods in which it appears, this Abbey leaves you speechless. You can still feel that air of respect and mystery typical of medieval sites. It has several rooms. A library to which I could not log in, the cloister from the entrance to the main church in which there are carved wooden furniture that are impossible to describe. Every detail is a little masterpiece. The pharmacy is kept in excellent condition with still the glass ampoules with spice nomenclature which contained a time. Also you can buy sweets and liqueurs of Friars as the drops. Suitable for families and couples who love silent adventures

  • What a beauty. Immersed in the greenery of centuries-old forests lies this famous and majestic monastery, founded in 1204 by Pope Innocent III. From 1208 was entrusted to the Carthusian monks. In 1947 they were replaced by the current Cistercians. Inside it is possible to visit the Church with precious works of art and the old pharmacy (17th century). The Charterhouse is a national monument and also houses a large library with 25,000 volumes.

  • A really nice place, surrounded by greenery, it takes some patience to get there, the road is all curves. The Charterhouse is beautiful, the entrance is free and there is also the Guide (Finally you can make a donation). Shop with possibility to buy liquor and chocolate produced by the friars.
