This is a must see.The veiled Christ is one of the most beautiful sculptures I have seen.I am not sure about the two anatomical figures in the downstairs room . The cost to visit is 7 euros and well worth it.

The Veiled Christ, Modesty and Disillusion are remarkable expressions of human creativity and the latter two in particular must be among the most exquisitely crafted sculptures in existence. They are not quite on a par with Michelangelo's Pieta but they are remarkable and Modesty struck me as especially fine. You felt that the material that shrouded her was not only... More

Amazing works of art !!! Il Cristo velato by Giuseppe San Martino and Deception by Franchesco Queirolo are the most incredible sculptures I've ever seen. I've been twice to see them and spent a very long time admiring them. The chapel holds almost thirty works of art in total, being this two the most outstanding imho. Would go again and... More

There are many things to see in Naples and Italy in general, but this one is a RARE occasion of discovering one of faith's most extraordinary marvels on earth.

Don't miss the Capella Sansevero. The most beautiful "veiled" marble atatues can be admired here. They really are a perfect example of craftmanship you can think of. If you do not know what I am talking about than please google the Capella Sansevero and I am sure you will be intrigued by their beauty. It is a "must see" in... More

My review and rating is on the place itself, not pricing or policies. I was amazed when I stepped inside. So many enigmatic sculptures, so much detail, impressive art on the sculptures which made me stay there for a while just going through all the details of them. It is not a church or public chapel, is more of a... More

The most realistic representation ever seen of Christ in his late moments. The expression of the corpse is more intense than the reality. Anatomy under the veil appears in all the significant details which can transmit his agony. The whole chapel surrounding the statue is full of meaningful allegorical representations. Guide is mandatory to take advantage of the visit which... More

Very small museum. Well worth the €7 to see the veiled Christ and the skeletons . Whole chapel is ornate and worth seeing. Ticket office is in adjacent building.
