Certosa di san Giacomo

Napoli - Capri
Monuments

 

Realized between 1371 and 1374 for the will of Giacomo Arcucci, Giovanna I d’Angiò’s secretary, it was then destroyed during all of the XVI century due to the Saracen invasions, afterwards restored from the monks, who edificated a tower for defense, that then collapsed in 1808. During the French rule, after the religious orders were abolished from Giuseppe Bonaparte (1807) the Chartusian monastery was used for very different aims. From then on it wasn’t used anymore for religious purposes and is nowadays a prestigious location where artistic, musical and cultural events take place. Now there is the Public library and a classical study high school. The Church has an ogival portal with bas-relief and a fourteenth century fresco in the lunette. The interior, made of one nave preserves the cross vaults, and remains of sixteenth century frescoes. The convent includes the cloister-garth of the fourteenth century, closed up by some porches on small columns with Roman and Byzantine capitals, dominated by the Baroque Clock Tower; the Big Cloister, dating back to the XVI century, with pillar porches, around which you can find the cells, the Chapter house and the garden where the Carthusians spent their days.

Long the braw of a ravine that overlooks on the way between Unghia Marina and Grotta Dell'Arsenale, there is the prior’s housing from where one can admire a beautiful view of the island of Capri. Even if frequently remodeled and now used for different purposes, the carthusian monastery remains one of the main example of Capri’s architecture, expecially for its medieval part with a characteristic vault covering.
