Museum

Located in the ancient Certosa of Saint Martin, the museum combines testimonies and historical memories of the Kingdom of Naples with the surrounding natural landscape visible from the loggias that offer a beautiful view on the Gulf of Naples.

History

The Certosa dedicated to St. Martin, bishop of Tours, was founded in 1325 by the will of the Duke of Calabria, Carlo D'Angiò, and built by Tino di Camaino and Attanasio Primario, according to the architectural rules of the Order; the church was then deeply changed between the end of the 16th Century and the 18th Century so that only the gothic underground have preserved their original aspect.

In the building worked important artists such as Lanfranco, Ribera, Battistello Caracciolo and Luca Giordano, but in 1799 the monks were expelled from the monastery and in 1866 the structure was declared National Monument and was opened to public as Historical Museum of the city and the Kingdom of Naples.

Collections

In the naval section can be admired different models of royal boats among which the Battleship of King Umberto I and that of the Queen Margherita, the Royal Launch and the Launch with 24 oars that Naples donated to Carlo di Borbone; have been also selected various ship models that show the historical and technical evolution of the Army of the sea.

Are also remarkable the gothic underground of the Certosa well preserved that house an important nucleus of sculptures from the Middle Ages to the Modern Age, as well as the section dedicated to the historical memories of the Kingdom of Naples (from the 15th century to the 19th century) with representations of the city such as the famous Strozzi Painting, and portraits of the kings of the Bourbon Family. Then we find the Prior Apartment, the Cabinet of Drawings and Prints with many works among which stand out those of Vanvitelli and Antonio Niccolini, and the section of the maps of Napesi; the section dedicated to the decorative arts (with majolicas, porcelain, glasses, mirrors and precious objects); at least can be admired the theatre section, dedicated to this great Neapolitan tradition with scenographies and sketches for curtains and masks, and the crib section where stands out the crib of Cuciniello housed in an artificial grotto, with shepherds, animals and still lifes.

As a seasoned traveller and art lover I cannot recommend this spot highly enough. Amazing stone inlay floors with floral patterns. Every possible surface is decorated with frescoes and wood inlay. Baroque in all it's glory.

A day into our first visit to Napoli, we were already overwhelmed by the hustle and bustle of the central district in which we were staying. We decided to do something more "off the beaten path" by visiting San Martino and it certainly paid off. To get there, we took the metro (linea 2) to Montesanto and then got on...

One of the most interesting places of art worth seeing when it concerns religious painting and fresco's in Italy (together with Assisi and Padua). The overwhelming amount of high quality work in the church and adjoining rooms makes one visit of a couple of hours really too short; therefor one feels a desperate need to buy a book with all...

There are so many things to see. Don't miss the church right inside the entry. The inlaid marble flooring is fantastic and you can go behind the altar to see behind the scenes rooms. You can only get into the tombs with the guide which is only on Saturday and Sunday. Even if you don't get your language, it is...

Not really easy to reach (you have to climb never ending stairs and can get easily lost (at least I did but ran into friendly locals who put me back on the right track). Once you reach the place, it looks somewhat run down. The lobby is rather shabby. And then it become absolutely marvelous. The church is gorgeous, with...

A splendid combination of beautiful baroque church and monastery, interesting museum, old cloister and unbeatable views.

One of the best surprises of my trip was this museum perched just below Castel Sant'Elmo. Beautiful art, and some very friendly staff. Kids playing soccer in the courtyard outside, and not too crowded.

Well worth trekking to the top of the hill for this one. Beautiful church along with lots of good art work and to top everything also, great views. Also nice is that it will probably be pretty empty.

This place is over superbly decorated, no corner has been left untouched. Also I would simply go up here for the spectacular views. A must do if in naples

I've been here on a sunny Sunday morning (interestingly enough, away from hoards of tourists). Breathtaking vistas and a very soothing and relaxing walk. Naples from here seems more quiet and silent... even more magical - if it were possible!
