Another impressive church of monumental proportions

Seen a few like this, it is quite impressive, but after you've seen a few they all appear very similar However, definitely worth a visit if in Naples

I love going to cathedrals, I just find them mesmerising and Naples cathedral was no different. You just seem to stumble upon it after walking down some narrow streets. The architecture was amazing outside and in. One of the aspects I found most intriguing was the ceiling!

Churches, for me, are all about the architecture, not the religion. This is an outstanding example of a cathedral of the type and I would recommend a visit. No restrictions on Photography - and there are plenty of great image making opportunities here. the light around midday can be outstanding.

In the middle of Naples historic centre stands this impressive cathedral. I can think of more beautiful churches when you see the cathedral from the outside, but the inside is just stunning. Do not forget to visit the crypt and point your camara up as well as the cielings are just amazing, especialy in the San Gennaro Chapel. Also the... More

Timed our visit just right - arrived just before the Cathedral opened in the afternoon at 2:30. A tall narrow building with otherwordly black (obsidian) statues and an incredible amount of silver. The crypt houses holy relics and the whole building seems to be black, white or silver - very elegant and austere. A lovely area to meander around also

This is a beautiful edifice and wonderful respite from an otherwise dreary neighborhood. It is well worth a visit to see this architectural delight. Not imposing from the outside like many European cathedrals, but inside it is brighter and more elegant than many. It's great width comfortably and appealingly houses many beautiful side altars and small chapels.

I'm sorry that I didn't have enough time to go inside this church. But from the outside it had very intricate stonework.

The Duomo is well proportioned and quite austere except for the beautiful ceiling. In our view the Baptistry is by far the best part, despite the splendour of the San Gennaro chapel, as it contains the remnants of Byzantine mosaics which are stunning.

The cathedral is nice, but probably my expectation was a bit too high, because I was somewhat disappointed. The different styles did not match ever according to my opinion, although this can be different for someone else. So a visit is still recommended to make your opinion.

Seeing that this is the most important church in Napoli we obviously had to go in. First thing you notice is the grandeur of the place, but isn't this with all big churches? It's an amazing big place to visit and the shrine of San Gennaro is impressive. Still i think there are other more impressive churches in Napoli. A... More
