Churches, Palaces and Monuments

The villas built by the Emperor Tiberius, the Charterhouse of San Giacomo, the Phoenician Steps...
  • Charterhouse of San Giacomo
    The Charterhouse of San Giacomo is a splendid example of Capri-style architecture and was built in the 14th century by Count Giacomo Arcucci, adviser to the queen of Naples, Joan I of Anjou. In the mid 17th century, the Charterhouse was expanded and restored with Baroque elements. The Charterhouse has two beautiful cloisters, a larger one dating back to the 15th century extension and the smaller, original cloisters from the 14th century. Today this majestic architectural complex houses a museum, a library and a school.
  • Church of San Costanzo
    This pretty little Byzantine style church was probably built before the year 1000 and is dedicated to the Patron Saint of Capri, Costanzo. The church is painted in white throughout and is located near Marina Grande, in a very attractive setting.
  • Villa Jovis
    This is the most imposing of the 12 villas built on the island by Emperor Tiberius in around 30 A.D.
    Villa Jovis overlooks the sea from the top of Monte Tiberio, with a truly spectacular view that embraces the entire Bay of Naples. The Villa covers around 7000 m_ and has several floors. The enormous cisterns, located at the center of the complex, are considerable and were used supply the emperor and his following with rainwater for drinking and bathing.
  • Castello Barbarossa
    Of Byzantine origin, the castle became famous in around 1500 because of Barbarossa, the Saracen pirate responsible for violently sacking the island. The castle stands at around 400 meters above sea level.
  • Phoenician Steps
    Until 1874, this was the only link between Capri and Anacapri. The steps start from Marina Grande di Capri and climb up over the rocks to 200 meters above sea level, until reaching Capodimonte Cliff in Anacapri.
