The museum of the Blue Grotto Capri

The museum of the Blue Grotto of Capri was originally a private nymphaeum in Roman times, a magical place with statues of Poseidon, tritons and other sea creatures discovered at the bottom of the cave in 1963 and now exhibited in the museum of the Casa Rossa in the center of Anacapri. In the past there was an overland connection with a Roman Villa not far from the site that today is in ruins in Gradola, a few tens of meters from the museum site.
