Lovely church and gallery

We found the Pio Monte on Via dei Tribunali. It holds a lovely collection of paintings and church treasure, crowned by a Caravaggio. Worth the €7 admission.

The pinoteca (picture gallery) was interesting, but not exciting. However, the Caravaggio (The Seven Mercies) alone made the entrance fee worthwhile.

At least, more or less! Here is where to find 'The Seven Acts Of Mercy' in the church for which it was originally painted. Its a vast, impressive and detailed work. For a euro, you can start up an interactive display that explains the piece but, be warned, you only get five minutes! The chapel itself is simple and fairly... More

Finding the street took effort, but well worth it. The paintings, especially the Caravaggio, are extraordinary. The church itself is smaller than expected. As with many places in Italy, it needs work. Additionally in the price of a ticket there is the gallery of other art and items in an adjacent building.

I desperately wanted to see the Carravagio but we were on a cruise and only had one day in Naples. We visted Erculano in the morning and returned to Naples in the afternoon not realising this church closed at 2.30. So did not manage to get in . Ah well a good reason to visit Naples again.

An absolute must for any Caravaggio enthusiast and a must on any visit to Naples, a city with an edge that you will either love or hate. I am of the former.

Chapel of rich young men, that were visiting ill poor peoples, some 500 years ago, and wanted a place where to pray, before their charity. The masterpiece is a painting from Caravaggio, the seven vertues, that will take your breath away

Pleasant little octagonal chapel with some interesting paintings, plus its own little gallery attached. Worth a visit on its own, but the fact that it's home to Caravaggio's Seven Acts of Mercy makes it a must visit. What's really striking about this is how well its lit - no having to move around to avoid reflections from spotlights. Not sure... More

If you like paintings by Caravaggio, then this little church should definitely be on your list. There are lots of paintings by other artists, but the main one is the Seven Acts of Mercy by Caravaggio. When we went, there weren't many people, so we were able to sit quietly and look at it.

All the reviews rave about the Caravaggio paintings, and I'm going to as well. They are well-restored, well-lit, easy to see, and just absolutely stunning. The rest of the art work is interesting if mostly religious daubes. I would bypass several art museums to see the Caravaggios; I'm really glad to have seen these. The courtyard is very nice as...
