Certosa Di San Martino - Review
Certosa di San Martino is a Monastery in Naples that looks like a palace. This Carthusian monastery was built in the 14th century and restored in the 17the century. The restoration was done following the style of Neapolitan baroque. The structure is now transformed to a museum. The great cloister and the beautiful garden offer a are simply beautiful. The quiet atmosphere, with the city below makes the place most impressive.
Exhibits here are varied and beautiful and the art depicts Naples very beautifully. The come back scene of the Aragonese fleet after facing the Ischia Battle is also painted here. It was after the restoration, that this great monastery got its real beauty. It is now considered as the masterpiece of that era of Italy. From the baroque decoration to the marble floor everything is worth seeing. The Museum also holds the great art works of the Roman artists like Jusepe de Ribera, Battistello Caracciolo and Giuseppe Sanmartino. There is a ceiling painting “Ascension” done by Lanfranco which is a highlight for sure. The main reasons for visiting this religious place are to experience the eerie atmosphere in it and also to enjoy the splendid view of Naples. The travelers will find amazing treasures in the rustic scene.

Certosa Di San Martino, Naples Reviews
Very nice place and it was only €6. A lot of religious artwork. There is also a "garden" in the back that looks over the city and ocean.
Too expensive for the place. It's a museum consisting of photo galleries of 18th and 19th century. You have a nice view of the city and the mountains surrounding it. Please open Wikipedia and read to understand the place instead of buying the audio guide. Iould recommend this place only if you have nothing else to do in your to do items.
The world's most beautiful city view.
One of the places more loaded with history in a city full of history. Plan to spend at least four hours contemplating the paintings and decorations in the church (where the altar is in fact nothing but... wood stucco and paper!), the sacristy and adjacent rooms, the paintings gallery, the section devoted to historical Christmas Cribs, tons of old maps of Napoli.... and, last but not least, the superb overlook of the city.
Impossibly huge museum, but not really for me. Lots of the rooms and spaces were closed or off limits due to repairs.
