It's the main reason for visiting Naples. This extraordinary sculpture is totally breathtaking...it's as if the body of Christ is covered in tissue - but it's not! It's gnuine marble. Deeply, deeply moving.

I'm not a religious person or even in to art however the sculpture is phenomenal to say the least.

I came this place to see Veiled Christ, the master piece. It is amazing work. I rate only 4 stars because this place is very small and only one or two master piece.

Little chapel, no space and short visit because of students. You have to choose the right hour in order to avoid this kind of crowd.

Marbles sculptures look like living figures with emotions and souls. Amazing place with beautiful sculptures worth visiting despite the museum is small.

Very small place. It's beautiful but thats the only small room and a little bit of space downstairs. No photos allowed! Maybe for such a place €7 is too much.
