The Certosa is a great place to visit, not only for the beauty of the place and the seascape one can admire, but also for the awesome collection of paintings on Capri by Diefenbach, from the teosophical circle.

Although the building may be interesting, the church has not much to show for and the museum has probably the worst possible set of depressive paintings I've ever seen. the author, a german artist living in Capri should have met Freud...well - not my taste...More

We were the only people in the garden for about an hour hidden away no guide or map you have to find it yourself, run down with huge potential, go before the rest of the world finds out !

Viewed it from the Augustus gardens and from its gated entrance and archway. No idea what it's like inside as it was closed. Very limited opening hours to the public.
