History & Story
The Cappuccini monastery in Amalfi is one of the most important monuments on the Amalfi Coast.
The place, its lemon gardens, the monks’ walk, and the panoramic views have been an inspiration for artists, painters, photographers and ultimately for travelers coming from all over the world.
The complex was built at the beginning of the 13th century and was recorded in 1214 as a priory owned by Cistercian monks; it became an abbey in 1223.
In 1583 the monastery was entrusted to the Capuchin Friars who remained there for more than two centuries and carried out a vast restoration and reconstruction project. After the Friars were expelled in 1813, the complex was turned over to the Archbishop of Amalfi who first used it as a dining hall and later entrusted it to private parties which turned it into an inn.
The community council of Amalfi converted it into a Nautical Institute in 1866.
In 1885 the monastery was used as a hotel for the first time and another series of transformations was initiated in order to meet the increasing tourism demand.
The renovation took place in 2009 in collaboration with the offices of cultural and historical heritage
