One way to see a unique side of Capri is to visit the Philosophical Park in Anacapri, designed and built by the Swedish economist Gunnar Adler-Karlsson.

Located near the end of the Migliera walking trail which leads from the center of town to the breathtaking scenic overlook facing the Southwestern coast of Capri through a stretch of incontaminated countryside, the Philosophical Park combines the beauty of nature with the depth of Western and Eastern thought.

What to Expect
There is no ticket office or guard at the entrance to the Park, but simply an open gate leading into the nature reserve, where visitors can follow the simple wooden signs to the three paths which wind through the lush vegetation.

There are three paths through the park, each of which is dedicated to a different philosophical theme. All three lead up the hillside and are lined with quotes and aphorisms from philosophers and writers from the 7th century BC to the 20th century AD on pretty majolica tiles, inviting visitors to reflect and ponder some of life's great questions, surrounded by the peace and tranquility of the surrounding park.

Choose the path that speaks to you... or explore all three!

  • Idealism
  • Realism
  • Wisdom

The Park is the perfect place to carve out a few moments to dedicate to yourself in silent meditation, far from the pace of daily life and the crush of tourists visiting other sights on the island. Spend some time in contact with nature and your inner voice, surrounded by the quiet sounds of Capri's countryside and the wind off the Mediterranean.

Bring a bit of music or a good book with you, and use the Park as a peaceful retreat for a few hours!

If you continue along the path, you can stop at the breathtaking scenic overlook which takes in the view from the Faraglioni to the Punta Carena Lighthouse, or take the route to the Medieval watchtower, once owned by Axel Munthe.

Hours: Closes at sunset
