The Monumental Complex of St. Chiara, including the Church, the Monastery and the Convent, had been raised since 1310 to 1328 by the will of the King Roberto d’Angio and his wife Sancia of Majorca. The sovereigns, both devoted to St. Francis of...more

You will feel like in Spain or Portugal for the amount of beautiful ceramic or azulejos !
It is a must see for Central Naples tours: the whole town has improved massively and I am happy tourism is booming at present.
The cloisters are the shining jewel of this complex. Very interesting tile art, with zero references to Biblical stories--only scenes of "real life" (and maybe some fantasy too) from the outside. Super interesting, considering this was for the nuns who were not allowed to go...More
We visited on a drizzly morning, but even the rain couldn't mask the utter amazingness of the cloister. The museum is fascinating, too - and the loos are spotless! Don't miss the illuminated manuscripts in the library.
We saw photos of Santa Chiara and sought it out to visit. Not too pricey (€6 each) but a lovely point of stillness in the bustle of Naples. Beautiful seats with tiles on (sadly you can't sit there any more in an attempt to protect...More
Wow! This must be among the most spectacular underground / subway stations in the world! Be careful! We arrived here one afternoon as destination rather than point of departure. While gazing upwards at the spectacular roof we nearly forgot that we were coming to the...More

There is an orangery here and within the complex itself are contained the archaeological ruins of the original churches and monastery...More

Hi, Naples is not a car-friendly city. Santa Chiara is in an old part of town and although the streets are not as narrow as in the Spagnoli quarter, I wouldn't advise attempting to drive in the immediate vicinity. If accessibility is an issue, hire a taxi; the driver will know the best way to get closest to it. The Metro system is excellent and the nearest station is Dante. (P.S. The Spagnoli's streets are really narrow alleys.)
