I think I would have given this place an extra star had the space not been overtaken by seating in the open courtyard for some entertainment. But the bones of the building were gorgeous and one can just close your eyes and imagine days gone...More

There is really nothing to see apart from lots of cement and some cheap art. Daring to charge an entrance fee but I guess the monastery needs the money. Walk to the entrance and then back to the garden of Augustus.

Well worth a visit - really interesting warren of buildings and cloisters, with old frescos and modern art (we'd never heard of Diefenbach but very interesting); and make sure you find your way to the garden for the lovely coastal views.

We walked a long way to go to the Certosa di San Giacomo only to find that its hours are constricted. What a disappointment!

This impressive structure, apparently the oldest on the island, built in the second half of the 14th century on a land donated to a local noble by the Queen of the Epoch, currently houses a secondary school (Liceo) and a museum that collects the works...More
