The wonders in this church came as a complete surprise. The Aula Vasari is absolutely beautiful, with features unlike any we've seen elsewhere; I won't even try to describe them. Also astounding is a life-size lamentation of Christ in clay that my wife (who is knowledgeable about such things) thought must be new, though it was actually done in 1492.... More

Be ready for a wonderful surprise. The curch is beautiful, but paying only 5 Euros you have access to one of the most amazing things I have ever seen. The beauty of the Cappella Vasari is hard to describe, you have to see it to believe it. DO NOT miss it if you are lucky enough to visit Naples.

The church is a beautiful and sacred place. But you don't need to be religious to be moved by visit. A €5 donation each takes you into the areas being restored, and these are very impressive. There is a chapel which seriously has the feel and quality of a smaller Sistine Chapel. The work being done is a real credit... More

Stunning ceilings and decorations. Lovely chapel to visit. Suggest you try to avoid busy times as can get rather crowded.

well is did happen to walk near and was asking direction when I find this little treasure that is not really a must touristic church. I did find it to be beautiful reach in art and painting with its cultures to accomodate the feel.

No intentions of seeing this place but we just 'happened' upon it...the paintings are incredible.....this is definitely a must see and no other tourists there when we visited so obviously not a popular tourist stop.....

This is one more of the several dozens of beautiful churches you can see in Naples. Make sure you get there during the opening hours, as it is not always open. Esta es una mas de las varias docenas de bellisimas iglesias que se pueden visitar en Napoles. Solo procuren estar en las horas de servicio, para tener chance de... More

Look up, see the ceilings. Look around at the walls and chapels as well as main altar. Churches of this period are a glut of eye candy. This one deserves attention. Walk slowly, do not go when a service is conducted.

Nice church, but the chapel at the right end is what you will look for! Paintings, woodcrafts with the perspective of a painting...

Follow the signs and go back to the chapel. The inlaid wood pictures are tremendous along the walls of the chapel. We enjoyed looking at each individual picture. The workmanship is remarkable.
