An interesting if unspectacular church with a beautiful nativity model. There is also an altar and a statue outside dedicated to John Paul II.

Located right in the city center of Sorrento, on via Corso, the cathedral is dedicated to Saints Philipp and James. It is built in a Romanesque style. The Duomo has paintings by Napoletans artists and some woodworks. The Duomo has three naves separated by pillars. The ceiling is nice ornated. In the court of Duomo there are religious events from...

What a sumptuous place of worship - fantastic altars of finest marble, beautiful paintings, breath-taking ceilings, lovely statues, the finest examples of craftsmanship everywhere. We enjoyed it all, but most particularly the huge crib in the glass case just inside the entrance. It's very famous, and very worthwhile to visit. We went to the Saturday evening Vigil Mass at 7.30pm... More

Many will be attracted to this small cathedral to see the marquetry or marble or 17th century art.However,it houses a hidden gem.I refer to the Christmas all the year round crib or presepe.It appears to have been individually crafted with rustic art over a number of centuries,individually and lovingly.There are the Mother,Joseph and Child,Angels.Three Kings,Shepherds,Artisans and Animals in a story...

As you walk into the courtyard the Cathedral is on the right and the church school is on the side. It looks very plain and small at first so we took a seat in the courtyard and just watched for a while. We decided to go in and found a very pretty Cathedral much larger than expected. Not as big...

The Cathedral is relatively plain outside, but once you enter it is a completely different kettle of fish. It very highly decorated inside with a decorated roof with large inset paintings. There are lots of side chapels with statues and lots of candelabra. The cathedral has lots of marble inlay and amazing marquetry especially round the altar. In a side... More

Another amazing church in Naples. San Filipo is huge. It has some wonderful architecture and sculptures inside. If you are in the center of Naples you should pay a visit and spend a few minutes inside.

From the outside you could just walk past without even noticing this church. We went in to cool off and were amazed what a beautiful interior. It actually made us gasp. There was a slight downside as part of the left side was under wraps for refurbishment. But the parts that were already completed were fabulous. Especially the wooden inlayed... More
