Description

Visit the majestic San Martino Charterhouse on top of the Vomero hill, at the highest point of the city of Naples. Don't miss the opportunity to admire the architectural beauties of the monastery and the rich collection of the museum.

The Charterhouse includes the monks' cemetery, the procurators cloister, the big cloister, and the church.
The vault still shows the original 14th century frame, as well as impressive frescoes by Giovanni Lanfranco, and paintings by Caracciolo, Finoglia, Reni, Ribera, and Stanzione. The Maddalena chapel, the Conversi Choir, the sacristy, and the fresco of the Treasure are very well preserved.

In 1866, Giuseppe Fiorelli founded the National Museum of San Martino, seat of the collection of art objects connected with Naples and the history of the southern kingdom.

The Charterhouse of San Martino shares the highest point of the city of Naples with Sant'Elmo Castle. In addition to the architectural beauties of the monastery and the rich collection of the museum, unobstructed views of the city, the bay, and the surrounding countryside with Vesuvius reigning supreme make a visit to San Martino an unforgettable experience.
