If you come by ship, you surely cant' miss the impressive Charterhouse of S. Martino, built on a tufa hill dominating the whole city of Naples. Tino da Camaino started to build the Charterhous in 1325, upon request of Charles of Anjou. The original gothic decoration was totally covered during the renovation works started in the 16th century and ended in the 18th one, which turned a place of meditation into the most complete example of Neapolitan Baroque. The inside of the church is a splendid anthology of Neapolitan arts. Most of the frescoes are works by Giovanni Lanfranco and Battistello Caracciolo, the paintings on the walls of the choir were made by Ribera, Massimo Stanzione and Guido Reni, the vault of the Treasure Chapel was decorated by Luca Giordano and depicts The Triumph of Judith.
The rooms around the cloister host the Museum of S. Martino, probably the most important collection of arts about the history of Naples, including the famous Tavola Strozzi, the first neapolitan view dating back to the 15th century.
