Naples is a place full of endless riches, the Veiled Christ is one of these, it is absolutely impossible to lose, the wonder of the statue has no equal in the world, its expression is everything!

Though quite expensive I would highly recommend. My husband and I were here for at least an hour really taking our time to appreciate this marvellous work others came and went while we spent our time really looking at this amazing statue.

Entry fee was €7, payable at the ticket office just west of the museum/chapel. WC/toilet is at the ticket office (must ask), not st the museum. Most signs in both italian and English. Will take one hour (at the most).

We had never heard about this little church before coming to Naples, however it turned out to be one of the highlights of our 3 week trip in Italy.

Eloquent sculpture. Weird models of circulatory system of human in basement crypt. Lots of Free Mason symbolism.

At €8, I was a little sceptical when we first arrived as it was a small church and you couldn't take photos. However, when I looked at the details in the sculptures, they are incredible and like nothing I've ever seen, so this made the price more acceptable. On the way around the church, there is a set of stairs... More
