J.K.Capri - The Certosa

   
 

Situated just a few steps from the famous Piazzetta, the Certosa di San Giacomo is one of the most important historical buildings on the island. Built in 1371, it suffered extensive damage as a result of repeated pirate raids in the sixteenth century. Restoration lasted until 1636 and, over the years, it has been home to a monastery, a military base, a hospital and a prison. Today, it is a charming location for cultural events.
