Sansevero

Great exhibits and quiet rooms. Almost alone on a Sunday and certainly worth a visit. Highly recommend it although there are lots of other places to see.

San Severo Prince was an interesting character of Neapolitan history. A visit to the Museum chapel is really worth paying.

The only downside to this museum is that you are not able to take pictures inside at all.. The price of the tickets was a little high for the small amount of things seen, but well worth the €5 with the student discount. The chiesa itself is beautiful inside and the statues sure add to it. The detailing in these... More

Although the entry is not cheap for such a small place, it is definitely worth the visit. The veiled Christ in marble by Giuseppe San Martino is an outstanding work of art. Do not miss the Disillusion by Francesco Queirolo. So beautifully crafted !

I was really looking forward to this from the images I had viewed. The Chapel is fairly well hidden away in the back streets of Naples - in the maze of narrow streets. Scary actually. I first saw a marble statue of a lady with lace draped over her in the D'Orsay Musee - It was astonishing. How does a... More

A little gem of a baroque chapel containing the veiled Christ, a real sculptural marvel, as well as a demure sculpture of Mary, also veiled. Don't miss the creepy anatomical demonstrations downstairs.

What a surprise this was, full of baroque splendour. The ceiling was painted in true baroque style, and there were lots of tombs of the di Segno family around, and statues of the virtues, plus a lovely one in the centre of the church, the Veiled Christ. The floor used to be a labyrinth, but only a few of the... More

I am an art enthusiast and have visited many of the worlds best Museums. Two of the statues in this museum are the best I have ever seen. It is a bit pricey for such a small museum, so if you'r not into art don't go, but if you are, don't miss it.

A private chapel house with almost thirty works of art, among which are three idiosyncratic sculptures, the best is Veiled Christ and the graffiti on the ceiling with many masonic meanings.The chapel also displays a basement used as a lab with creepy skeletons. The skeletons are encased in the hardened arteries and veins. Must see if in Naples, mind you... More
