We visited and attended mass at Gesu Nuovo, during which time I had plenty of opportunity to note all the little details, some finely crafted and some frankly overdone, that make up a high Baroque church. I definitely recommend the visit. Moreover, the facade is truly unique in Napoli.

There were nuns and others praying in the various chapels. People would walk past them to view the chapels and to take pictures. It felt a little sacriligious at first... More

I think there are 400+ working churches in Naples - and many of them are Baroque delights - but to me sitting in the centre of the centro storico this was by far the most beautiful - the icing on the cake and if you visit only one then this would be my choice - even over the Duomo. Many... More
