It is situated in a lateral street right behind the central Piazza San Domenico. The museum is small and the price could be a bit high, but it really worth's. The "Cristo velato" sculpture is definitely unforgettable. Absolutely suggested!

Near the Piazza Neopolis, where we sat and watched the parade of humanity pass while we sipped Prosecco. The Veiled Christ was breathtaking. Small chapel that is easily navigated. Wish they allowed pictures, though. Very good guide materials. You would walk by it without a thought, as the exterior gives no indication of the treasures within. Allow about an hour... More

After a couple of trips to Naples, I was finally able to visit this church to see the Veiled Christ. Absolutely beautiful and touching. Only problem.... no photos allowed!!

A very unusual sight to see, with the famous VEILED CHRIST and the many other treasures of the Famous San Severo

Was taken here by a friend, thinking not another statue. But wow I was so much more impressed with The Veiled Christ than the Statue of David. The work involved and the expression on his face as well as the veil; it is just stunning. There are also many other things to see and explore in this Gallery. The Gallery... More

After seeing it's rank and reading other reviews we really wanted to see this place. It's not easy to find and involves you wandering through the warren of the old city (which is fun in itself, but frustrating if you're a bit time poor as we were that day) It cost €20 for two adults and a concession (under 25's...

This was probably the most breath taking part of our holiday. The veiled Christ was a sight to behold and words cannot do it justice. Anyone who visits Naples and misses this has missed the jewel in the crown.

A relatively small chapel that really packs a punch if you are interested in sculpture. The Veiled Christ is an incredible work of art, and it is not the only one on display here. The only downside is that you cannot photograph this beautiful chapel

The "Veiled Christ" and "Modesty" were my favorite sculptures, just based on the intricate fabric detail. Honestly, they look fake, too good, they are made of a marble-like material but I haven't found any more information as to what the material actually is. The museum is really small, but the work is so detailed its amazing. It cost me 7... More

This was near the top of our list for our visit to Naples, though it was a tiny bit awkward to find (turn left as you leave the ticket office, if you can find that!). It was worth it, though. We had the Naples Artecard so the discounted fee was €5, for which you access a small chapel holding several... More
