“Baroque - Bizarre”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2014

Baroque means bizarre, and this is exactly what you'll find. A facade like no other in the world; and a beautiful example of the inner beauty of the magnificent city in which it's located. The piazza as well is worth just sitting in for people watching, plus it's conveniently located right off Spaccanapoli.

“Baroque splendor.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014

The outside of this church is rather forbidding, but inside is a wonderland of baroque decoration. Truly stunning and full of gorgeous details--something to see and admire everywhere you look. The chapel dedicated to local doctor Saint Moscati is touching. A must-see in Naples.

“Definitely Worth a Visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2014

This is one of a dozen or more baroque churches in old Naples that together make a full day of amazement. Recommend you hire a good guide to fully appreciate them.

“Loved it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2014

I enjoyed the serenity of the church. The mass was very good, not crowded, old aged Italians. I had a high respect for Saint Giuseppe Moscati.

“Do not walk past this awesome place.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014 via mobile

The outside of this building is interesting with pyramid shaped protrusions and an elaborate doorway. Inside you will be blown away. There are so many things to see, each alter could be the centre piece of a cathedral but here there are so many. Do not leave without finding the small chapel at one side and small museum celebrating the life of a doctor who helped the poor. There is a statue of him in the main church and his final resting place. Take time in this amazing place. Sadly there is no information in English.
