The place is in a state of repair and partially closed so it's not really worth visiting at the moment unless you're going to visit Castel Sant'Elmo anyway.

Set high above Naples in the leafy area of Vomero, this is best accessed using one of the funiculars unless you are feeling really fit! The views are just spectacular, there's a beautiful church with an outstanding floor, and the priors quarters feature some truly high-quality art works. In fact it seems that the prior got the best of everything, including a garden overlooking the city. Thoroughly recommended.

We entered thinking we had access to the castle, and thought what we were seeing was a nice bonus. When we found out we did not have access to the castle, we actually didn’t care as what we had seen was way worth the money, and in the end we didn’t bother going to the castle. The views from this museum were fantastic. Millennials would get brilliant Instagram snaps from here. We thoroughly enjoyed this and was one of the highlights of our trip.

This was a highlight of the trip to Naples. A big complex with extraoridnary church, choir, sacristy and the Treasure Chapel. It was such a great experience. There is a great cloister where you can rest a bit. You can spent here a half a day. There is a panoramic view for the Gulf of Naples. Must visit when in Naples.
