(Titian's "Danae")

Museum and National Gallery of Capodimonte. Constructed as a royal palace by Charles Bourbon in 1738, the museum and gallery contain a vast collection of paintings, sculptures, majolica, antique weapons and various other works of art. The 19th century Gallery is of particular importance. The museum is situated in a park densely forested with olm-oaks, pines and lime trees; once a hunting reserve for the Bourbon monarchs it is open to the public.
