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 - Write a Review
Overwhelmingly beautiful church and monastic complex filled with outstanding fresco cycles, an impressive cloister filled with some of the most impressive sculpture of the 16th century, along with a collection and exhibition of wonderful artworks. Great panoramic view of the city as well.
Excellent monument of medieval and Renaissance culture and architecture. You have to buy a ticket to get in. Visitors are allowed to take non commercial photo without flash light.
It was ok, nothing special. Great view, but many parts were closed. Unfortunately everything is only in Italian and it was the only museum in Naples without any maps or schemes for tourists with at least some explanations
The view from up here is amazing! Worth the hike up
The building itself and marvellous view of the city are probably the most notable reasons to visit. Surprisingly there is a small nautical section displaying two old launches and a few ship models which I appreciated. The first part of the museum is dedicated to nativity scenes (cribs) - a permanent exhibition. Very strange but apparently famous for the region.
