Must see!

A very spiritual experience. The quality of pices on display is extrordinary. We took a break from the regular exploring of Naples and pleased we did.

Well every church or chapel has its sights worth seeing. 7euros to see a small chapel vs free entry to the duomo? Go, if you are desperate to see the veiled Christ statue. Si non,....

It is located in the historical center of Napoli. It is considered a beautiful example of Napoli baroque art. There is about 30 pieces of art. In particular, I was very impressed with which the talent of the sculptor Giuseppe Sammartino to show the Christ under a veil of marble.

Regardless of how you get to Naples, this is a must stop. For us, this was a perfect late afternoon activity after a morning at Pompeii in the hot sun and a nap. 20-30 minutes inside the church is enough and you will be left with your mouth agape. See the other reviews for sculptures and frescos which are spectacular.... More

One of the most beautiful pieces of sculpture on earth is in this museum - Christ lying in repose covered with a thin shroud. It is truly a work of art that must be seen if you are in the Naples area. The Sanservo is quite small and easily seen in less than an hour, but most people seemed fixated... More

Little on the expensive side (slightly resent paying to go into a church anyway) for what is by any stretch no more than a half an hour visit. A compact but intense visit. Veiled Christ spectacular and the exhibits in basement are fascinating. Avoid Sunday mornings!

The price is a bit high for the small chapel, but it is worth it, in my opinion! I know my art history and have seen famous sculptures all around the world. Two works in this chapel (Cristo Velato and the Disinganno) are my absolute favorites in the ENTIRE WORLD. The craftsmanship and attention to detail are incredible, to say... More

Yes, it is very beautiful, might even say amazing, but over priced at 5 euro with the Artecard, so this 5 circle drops to 3 because of the 1 circle price. You are not allow to take a photo, save your 5 euro and buy the postcard.

Just off Via Tribunali - this attraction is worth the visit - in some respects: 1. The Veiled Christ is not to be missed. And the other sculptures on the wall are equally impressive. 2. The rule of no photography applies here (apparently - I don't know how other posters on here were able to get a photo ) That... More
