Nice, but too much entrance fee for this small museo. And in my opinion not friendly employees inside the museo.

This is a very small chapel, a bit off the beaten path in Old Naples, but not so hard to find. Everything is close in that area of town, if you can navigate the small streets. We recommend using a guide for a half day tour of old Naples if you have not been there before.The veiled Christ work was the highlight for us at this stop, though plenty of other beautiful sculpture as well. If you are a Mason, this one has some history for you.

Amazing sculpture and defintiely worth seeking out this small chapel. I was just as struck by the techniques and gravitas of hte other sculptures as much as the Christo Velato. While others in our group were in San Lorenzo I was determined to find this museum though had been told it was very well hidden. However, easy to find and a real gem for any art lover.

See the amazing sculpture of the Cristo Velato and the rest of the Museum. Visit the nearby Via dei Tribunali with his famous pizzerias.

Definitely do not miss this monument when you are in Naples. Although the highlight is the famous sculpture of Christ, seemingly covered by a marble "veil", the entire chapel needs to be experienced as a whole. There is a real aura there of mystique and genius....go.
