i think the cost of the ticket is high because you can see the chapel in 10 minutes,anyway it was interesting because there is the origin of mason-ism and alchemy,connected with the prince Raimondo di Sangro, inside the chapelyou can admire the wondereful statues made very naturaly,with extremely details but a little scary especially for small kids

It's small for the price you pay, but that is the cost of maintaining works of art I suppose! The veiled Christ is not to be missed, you can see if up close and it is fascinating. Other sculptures in the room are also wonderful to look at although we were unlucky with scaffolding over the altar for restoration. Don't... More

This was one place in Naples that blew me away. I was expecting another small chapel/church like those that are everywhere in Italy, but this one was absolutely stunning. The sculptures inside are beautifully crafted- there is one of a man struggling with a fishing net, and he is caught in the net; the entire sculpture was created out of... More

Our visit was instigated by a television programme called Italy Unpacked. An art critic and a chef running around Italy in a Maserati. It was just breathtaking when you walk in and see the "Veil of Christ". Nothing can prepare you for the carving laying in the centre. The only disappointment for me was the fact that no photos at...

Of the very many things to see in Naples we chose 2 and this was one of them and we definitely made the right decision. The sculptures are amazing, not just the veiled Christ which is incredible. Highly recommend.

Don't miss out on this small chapel! Do bear in mind that camera's are not allowed. However, you won't be disappointed. Sculptures are stunning and the statue of the Christ simply breathtaking! A must see when in Naples!

Only those who appreciate good art maybe will enjoy the visit there. The place is really small!!! And as soon as you enter the Chapelle you are shocked it's that small and you paid 7 euro for 2 min visit. Yet the art of the sculptures is very beautiful and there is also another surprise: two remains of skeletons covered... More

The veiled Christ is simply stunning. A small chapel worth visiting and don't miss going downstairs to see the surprise.

This us a must see whilst staying in Naples . Easy to find and the statues are amazing. Loved the veil of Christ but it was not my favourite. browse at your leisure and be sure to go downstairs .You can not take picture even without flash but they do sell photos and cards in the shop.

For art lovers.... sculptures are truly spectacular. No cameras allowed. You can see this Museum on the way to any other attraction in Naples.
