The directions are difficult to follow, but when you finally see this hidden treasure you can't believe that this sculpture is made of marble.

Really nice baroque chapel in the heart of most tipical Napel's streets. The cristo velato sculture is simply goergious! It's not hard to understand why the popular legend said that it been realised whit the effort of the magic. Really fascinating are also the two body with all veins visible.

One could say the amazing veiled christ is worth the price of the ticket but you still feel they are pushing their luck on the price. Leave yourself 30 minutes just for veiled christ, wandering around it to see all the angles.. a real unqiue masterpiece.

This place is definitely a "must see"! it's all about mysteries and art! there are so many legends about this place and the Prince of Sansevero! And even if you aren't lucky enough to have a local to tell you these legends, the Veiled Christ will surely capture you! Amazing!

Prior to visiting check opening times and days as not open on every day of the week. Easy walking from Dante Piazza or Metro. It... More

Amazing Caravaggio in the church but the real gem is the museum upstairs which has hundreds of other amazing paintings
