What to expect

One of the symbols of the city of Naples, the Certosa was founded in 1325 by Charles, Duke of Calabria and son of Robert of Anjou. It is perched atop the Vomero hill, from where you can enjoy a wonderful view over the Gulf of the city, and it is dedicated to St. Martin of Tours. The Certosa was originally a gothic monastery, but it was later expanded and restored. The original structure is only visible in the basement, where you can see the sculpture section.

The Certosa has hosted the National Museum of San Martino since 1866, a place you should visit when you want to learn more about the history of the city and its art. Here are shown many works of art from the Bourbon period until the Italian unification and later. In the former kitchen rooms, you can now see the section of the museum dedicated to the nativity scenes. Do not miss the “Tavola Strozzi”, a panel painting recently acquired by the Italian government of particular importance for urban planning since it is the first representation of the city of Naples, dating back to 1472.
