This church has such an unusual exterior façade that you would never guess that the interior is so richly Baroque.

What a wonderful church. I would rate it more highly than the Sistine Chapel - huge, beautiful, empty, and glorious. A major asset to a great city, and only 1 hour 10 minutes by fast train from Termini, Rome.

Walking in from outside I was amazed. I wasn't quite expecting what I saw it was quite awesome. Rocco, Baroque and other art forms all mixed in together. Quite spectacular really.

Well worth taking a look and learn something about Giuseppe Moscati. This had been a Jesuit church but when they were kicked out of Naples the Franciscans took over.
