    A Must See
    This church is considered one of the most important and one of the most beautiful churches in Naples. It has a very plain facade but inside has many beautiful paintings and frescoes especially on the ceiling. The alter is decorated in gold and marble. It is open from 9AM to 12:30PM and 5-7:30PM. Entry is free and it is definitely a must visit.

    Quiet contemplation and prayer
    Quiet and peaceful, people seem to drift in and out as needed. If you want some quiet time away from the noose and bustle of Napoli streets it's a great place to spend some time in quiet prayer. Highly decorative paintings, fixtures, symbols and statues with specific grottos for individuals attention. Central Alter is very ornate The crucifix is almost not visible a pity when this is the centre and part of the reason for a Church building.

    Stunning.
    Such a peaceful place to visit. It is a quiet haven in a very busy area. Be aware that it closes during the day. It is truly a beautiful church. It is also one of the stops on the red line hop on, hop off bus. Sit in the quiet and watch the tourists pass by inside.

    It’s a Jesuit church and that tells you what you need to know
    As almost all Jesuit churches, this one is an elaborate affair with endless eye candy. If you had two hours you could probably still not see all the detail worthy of being seen. Luckily, this is not one of the over the type variety with excessive gilt overwhelming everything. It is lovely, tasteful and interesting and as always a necessary part of your itinerary. As our time was limited and this was our second visit here, we felt obliged to cut it down to maybe a twenty minute stop, but I would spend more time, if it’s your first visit. Pair it with the phenomenal Santa Chiara cloister, catty corner from here. It’s a great one-two punch.

    Ornate and imposing
    A beautiful ornate church (outside and inside). The chaple dedicated to Giuseppe Moscati with some explanation of his history and connection to the church) was very interesting, as were the various statues and chapels. There was a particularly ornate chapel to the left of the altar which has multiple saint’s head carvings lining the walls. Beautiful and serene following the frenetic energy of Naples!

    Amazing Church with small pyramids covering the facade
    We visited the Gesù Nuovo (the 'New Jesus') church during our walkling tour of Naples. It was a 15th-century palace built in 1470. This church was taken over by the Jesuits at the end of the 16th century, and it was completely rebuilt. Bombing in World War II caused extensive damage, as one of the bombs went through the ceiling without detonating. The bomb is still in the church today. The facade features small pyramids, a style mainly used in the Venetian Renaissance. It a church worth visiting and spending some time inside viewing the amazing baroque interior.

    A beautiful church for baroque lovers
    This is the best church in Naples. It has a strange looking exterior with a wall that seems to be covered in acoustic pyramid foam. The inside is simply gorgeous beyond words especially if you like baroque design. Not only is the main altar stunning, but each of the side chapels along the left and the right side of the church is equally splendid. It is a feast for the eyes.

A beautyful church located close to Santa Chiara cloister at the historical center of Naples. Very impressive front exterior followed by a more interesting interior. It will complete your tour of historical Naples.
