I would suggest everyone to go visit the Veiled Christ. It is not far from Piazza San Domenico Maggiore and San Gregorio Armeno. Such a masterpiece in such a small place.

Despite the masterpiece of "il Cristo velato" the Cappella Sansevero is a "pagan" church exalting the principle and values of "the secret knowledge"

It is difficult to wright a review without giving the impression of not beeing objective. Why? Because it's really FANTASTIC!

You will see something so beautiful and unic, that you will remember it for... More

I was delighted to see the "veiled " figures of Christ and Modesty and the Anatomical Machines (downstairs ). This is a family chapel with unique decoration.

It's a small museum, so it will not take a lot of time to see everything (15min. tops?) There were 3 fascinating pieces and Veiled Christ was not one of them. I am not a fan of sculptures, but two pieces were really something. Also, anatomical exhibits were very interesting. However, that's it.

It's amazing. Privately owned chapel with marble statues of extraordinary quality. We went with our Italian friend I'm not sure we would have fount it on our own. I can't express the awe I felt of the workmanship.

A curiosity in Napoli not to be missed. Incredible the statue of the Cristo Velato and a totally surprising downstairs chapel. Something totally unique. A magic stop.

The statues were definitely impressive, but it was too expensive for such a small museum and we were able to see everything in less than 20 minutes. It was also quite crowded in there, and you are unable to take photos.

Their claim to fame is that they have the vailed Christ. The marble statues and frescoes are beautiful too but the church itself is teeny tiny. It wasn't really much of a museum.
