Under the direction of Cardinal Pietro Capuano, the foundation of the NH Collection Grand Hotel Convento di Amalfi dates to 1212. Several years later in 1223, the site became an abbey for an order of monks called the Cistercians. The monks left in 1452, and the University of Amalfi restored the complex. In 1583, the Cappuccini friars obtained the convent, staying within it for more than two centuries. Converted into a hotel in 1882, the Grand Hotel Convento di Amalfi is one of the most significant Italian monuments along the entire Amalfi Coast. Today, it provides a long history of exceptional hospitality to royalty, aristocracy, and celebrities. Two of the most celebrated visitors to Amalfi were the composer Richard Wagner and playwright Henrik Ibsen, both of whom completed works while staying in Amalfi. Recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the hotel resides within the quaint town of Amalfi. This beautiful community resides along the southern coast of Italy, surrounded by dramatic cliffs and exquisite scenery. Once the capital of the ancient Republic of Amalfi, the town was an important trading power in the Mediterranean between 839 A.D. and 1200. In medieval culture, Amalfi was famous for its flourishing schools of law and mathematics. Flavio Gioia—who is traditionally considered the first to introduce the mariner’s compass to Europe—is said to have been a native of Amalfi.
