The Certosa di San Giacomo, a charming piece of history to taste and discover.
The Certosa di San Giacomo is an old monastery built in the second half of the XIV century, and is still today the oldest building on the island of Capri.
Ideal for pleasant walks surrounded by the green, fresh air and tranquility, it welcomes visitors through an avenue that leads to a fortified tower and to the portal of the church, elegantly frescoed.
Despite the numerous works carried out over the years, it retains a unique charm and a strong architectural feature, as also found in the Amalfi Coast.
The Certosa di San Giacomo, relax and knowledge.
Perfect for a cultural weekend in Campania during a stay at our 4-star hotel in Capri, the visit to the Certosa permits to admire the spaces for the lay brothers, for outside guests, for women, the pharmacy, barns, stables and laboratories.
Of great impact are the two cloisters: the bigger, in the Renaissance style, with a geometric design in the centre, and the smaller, with round arches on a marble colonnade.
Actually, the complex can be visited free, it hosts a lot of events and concerts, as well as being the seat of the Museum dedicated to the German painter Diefenbach.
