“Breathtaking Church”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

I'm amazed that they were able to hide such a beautiful church right in the middle of Naples.
The walls outside do not indicate that this church would be this stunning inside.
This on is a "Must see" in Naples.

“Wow......unexpected to say the least”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

Although I am not religious at all sometimes I quite enjoy having a look in famous churches as I like the architecture. Have passed this one a few times and never seen it open so, on passing the other day, I saw the doors open and people coming and going so decided to step in for a wander. Wow!! This place is HUGE and so not what I expected judging by its façade which is plain to say the least, in my opinion anyway.
Stunning inside, lots to see. Ceiling is amazing.....
There are loads of little confessional booths (at least that's what I THINK they are!) and it looks like you can just have a word with a priest. Not 100% sure on this as, like I said, I am not religious.
Have a look if you get the chance..

“Baroque Interior”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

Unusual Church as externally is does not strike you as a stunning piece of Baroque art but step inside & the sense is overwhelming, an incredible ceiling & finally carved marble everywhere you look.

“Gem in the heart of Naples”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

Beautiful and unexpected. It has a very unconventional facade but when you enter this awesome church your jaw drops. It is positively a gem. Please go when you are in Naples, it is a must !

Reviewed July 15, 2013

Upon walking into this church the beauty takes your breathe
away. Unbelieveable works of art everywhere. Would definately recommend a visit especially on a sunday morning when service is on... quite moving!
