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.

Fantastic view from the terrace. Otherwise found it a bit stuffy especially the crib exhibit. Maybe cribs are not my thing.

We found this by accident. Well worth a visit. The church is beautifully decorated with frescoes and wood panels. I'm disappointed that I didn't know more about this church so I could have appreciated it's beauty and artistic importance at the time. Do your research and come prepared!

This church houses Guido Mazzoni's spectacular Pietà and an absolutely beautiful sacristy. The walls are covered with gloriously inlaid wood panels by Giovanni da Verona and the ceiling has Giorgio Vasari's frescoes. Magic!

Why were there only six people to see the Vasari ceiling on the morning we visited? We were blown away. Where is the booklet to explain the symbols?

We found this quite by chance taking a shortcut to Spaccanapoli. We having been coming to Naples for 10 years or more and had never noticed it. The church itself is well worth a visit, but the highlight has to be the side chapel completely covered in frescos by Vasari, and artist whose work is very rarely seen and who... More
