  • The Church is located at the beginning (or At the end) of the Sentiero del Passetiello, between Capri and Anacapri. The Church is (at least outside the season) open only on weekends.

  • If Monte Solaro is a gem not to be missed, Santa Maria a Cetrella and his most precious gem. It's a small church built on the edge of the mountain, about 500 meters above the sea of Capri. Next to the church there are children's bedrooms and a very old kitchen (see!) that make up the small Hermitage where withdrew the friars in the past and at present, sometimes very good, keep and treat volunteers Anacapri that this special place. The more dramatic the effect from the panorama from the terrace of the Hermitage. From here it overlooks Capri and the stacks, so close together that seem to touch them. I imagine the angels who at night or at dusk, enjoy being able to fly from the Church to the faraglioni, while Madonna calls them because to come back on you. In fact I think even atheists in this amazing place to be able to feel the presence of the supernatural. Unfortunately or fortunately is not easy to get there. The shortest and less uncomfortable, is to climb up Mount Solaro by chairlift (and this first visit and a must) then you have to go down to the Valley of Cetrella walk, in the middle of the Grove, following the marked trails. (therefore, sneakers, and good legs!) in about half an hour. To visit the Hermitage have to be lucky enough to happen to us in a recurrence that opens for mass, or you have to preemptively agree with volunteers who have the keys and you can accompany. (and we also offer coffee and their sympathy) The effort still worth, because it's an experience you never forget and you want to redo. Finally, if you go in the afternoon, the better, because then you can descend the mountain on foot, along the trails and enjoy the sunset at sea, and Anacapri approaching, until you'll emerge onto via Axel Munthe, i.e. in the town center, ready to go eat a pizza.

  • We absolutely loved this place. The view from the terrace is amazing and the people were so very welcoming. We had a great time there. Also a good place, if you like to visit the quiet and lesser crowded side of Capri Island.
  • Beautiful place to visit to enjoy green, peace and quiet. Could use some guidance along the trails.
