The Carthusian Abbey of Trisulti & the medieval hill top town of Veroli

Trisulti: an oasis of peace in the Appennine mountains and the medieval hill top town of Veroli.

Easy train ride from Rome and driving up through steep, untameable mountainscapes to the large and impressive Charterhouse of Trisulti – a 13th-century monastery with all the remote seclusion a monk could want.

Visit  the fine church with its highly ornate altar and Baroque frescoed ceiling, then the intriguing ‘pharmacy’ where monks used to blend their herbal remedies, and the lovely garden festooned with topiary shaped like coils of whipped cream.

Access the private part of the charterhouse  with one of the brothers, where the monks used to live in devote silence for most of the week,  and taste their Sambuca, herbal liqueur created by the Carthusian monk beginning of last century.

Back in our  comfortable van to reach onward to the near-centre of Ciociaria, Veroli – a truly charming and friendly hilltown full of gentle dogs basking in sunny piazzas and happy Verolesi sitting at café tables. Admire the stunning landscape from the from public ‘belvedere’ terraces. Guided tour of the Church of Santa Salome, mother of the Apostoles James and John,  see one of the few existing Roman calendar set in stone on a wall off a main street, but  the best of Veroli lies in its tidy domestic lanes, its little public squares, and its phenomenal views across the green and fertile landscape below and enjoy the visit tasting local products under the sun of Ciociaria.
