Perched On High

Once a Carthusian monastery, the museum of Certosa di San Martino overlooks Naples from atop Vomero hill. The religious order was established in 1368 and dedicated to Saint Martin of Tours. With a stunning view of the city, the vast monastery consists of a series of arcades, lush gardens, religious art, and ornate tapestries. The marble interior of the cloister, carved into a series of columns and sculpted skull decorations, is magnificent. There is also a collection of Neapolitan presepe, valued as some of the most exceptional nativity scenes in Naples.
