“Wow”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2012

This church looks rather drab from the outside but when you enter it is breathtaking. It is very ornate and truly fascinating. The various chapels within the church are very elaborate and one could sit in the pews and admire the intricate paintings all afternoon. There is a chapel dedicated to a local doctor who dedicated his life to helping the poor that is really interesting and our private guide provided some excellent insight into his life and death. Truly wonderful!

“Different exterior, classic interior”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2012

The different exterior is what makes it different. Certainly a must see. The interior in 5 star and grand.

“Beautiful church”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2012

Gesu Nuovo can be accessed from it's impressive facade and you are welcomed by an array of designs and delicate works of art, you do not know where to look first.

Even if you are pressurised by time, give it some 10 min and take on seat on the back benches and admire quietly it's beautiful architecture and colours.

“Dull outside - don't be misled”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2012

Once inside the sumptuous baroque decoration was amazing. You would never guess from the exterior just what treasures lie inside - amazingly fabulous decorations. The church seemed to be used for services particularly by the local Asian (Sri Lankan?) population
