The ceiling paintings are the most impressive feature of the main church. The Cappella di San Gennaro is lavishly baroque. The attached Santa Restituta church is beautiful and the adjoining baptistery, the oldest in W Europe, has some fascinating 4th century mosaics.

After seeing Naples you probably want to find a bus to throw yourself under, the Old City was absolutely filthy,rubbish empty bottles and cans every where,and why if you have such a famous City would you want to spray paint all over it,every lovely old building covered in graffiti,it was such a shame

A beautiful cathedral in the centre of Naples. Inside there is a really stunning chapel with amazing paintings, statues and religious ornaments. Definitely worth a visit.

The Duomo is an awesome structure that should be seen. At one time it would have been the centre of cultural and political life in the city. To this day it still remains an iconic structure replete with works of art and historic treasures. I find it amazing though that in such a poor part of Italy where people can't... More

We stayed for the mass, which had already started when we arrived. It was then closing for lunch for 40 minutes. It has very stiff competition from other lovely churches in Naples. Interesting and if you like ornate church artefacts there are plenty to be seen in the adjoining museum.

Popped in to say Buon Giorno to God. There is a crypt which I think has remains of San Gennaro. The cathedral is an impressive building with a beautiful painted ceiling.

Again we headed north off the Corso Umberto I and got to this beautiful Duomo in Via Duomo. Otherwise called Naples Cathedral or Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta or Cathedral of San Gennaro, it is a Roman Catholic cathedral and the main church of Naples. The San Gennaro or Saint Januarius was the city's patron saint. We approached, passing over... More

The sheer size of the Duomo is enough to keep you occupied. The real treasure is the Capella San Gennaro that holds the skull of Patron Saint San Gennaro. I'd recommend taking a seat in one of the pews and just take it all in and look up to the fresco on the ceiling. After spending a week in Naples... More

Very beautiful as are many churches and cathedrals I have visited in Italy, this one has an interesting story about San Gennaro.
