This is really one of the most extraordinary things I have ever seen. I usually think that things are ovverrated but this chapel really blew my mind. The most extraordinary thing is the sculpture of Gesu velato, it's just amazing and I can't imagine what kind of talent was needed to sculpt it in such a way that it look so real and delicate even though it is made out of stone. The other sculptures are beautiful and at the entrance you can get a flyer with the explanations of all the sculptures and what they represent. There is also sort of a maze made by stone blocks on the floor (the one on the floor is a representation, the real thing is built in one wall. And on the underground floor there are some sort of anatomy projects. All in all, a really awesome place, worth a visit if you are in Naples.
