  • I've been visiting the Chartreuse during a winter Sunday. The entrance is free of charge. 6 euro! The monastery is very nice ... is the oldest of Capri. There are numerous works of art on display and you can admire a lovely seaview. Great idea free audioguide. I have one suggestion ... is a lovely place but should be taken better--many of the rooms are empty and not cured and gardens there are weeds to trim and prune trees. The Council, however, to all those who want to breathe some history in the beautiful Capri!

  • It cost 6 euros and, honestly, even 1 euro would be too much. Completely boring buiidngs which have been restored with cement and concrete. If you like lots of terrible artwork, this is the place for ...  more »
  • The monastery is located not far from the square and, precisely, behind the gardens of Augustus overlooking the Bay of Marina Piccola. It was built in late Romanesque style, in the second half of the 14th century, in the Angevin period, at the behest of count Arcucci as a sign of devotion to being the father of a son. Over the centuries it has undergone various renovations due to fire and, especially, of looting by pirates in the 16th century. At the entrance to the monastery is the Church of San Giacomo: it has a single nave with groin vaults and frescoes from the late 17th century. The Wax is made up of three main areas: 1) in the first there was the Pharmacy and the Church for women; 2) in the second lay monks and locals visiting pilgrims; 3) in the third cloistered life was: there are the cells of the friars, warehouses, vegetable gardens and the prior's House around the great cloister and other rooms around the small cloister. Under French rule, in 1808, he became a barracks and later before a hospital and later a prison. It is currently the site of the high school and the Museum Diefenbach (permanent exhibition of his paintings). During the summer there are concerts and various other events.
