A uniquely decorated church, with a deceptive fortress-like exterior

Don't let the dour, massive and imposing exterior fool you. This church interior is filled with decorative Baroque in every corner. It is a lot to take in, so we actually returned a second time. Their are excellent frescoes, notable marble statuary, and a number of side chapels (e.g., Chapel of Visitation, Chapel of Nativity, etc.). The chapels contain some... More

You won't believe what are eyes are seeing. From the facade to every centimeter of the interior decoration, this church is a unique piece of Neapolitan Barroque piece of art

Pop in and have a look - despite the outside looking like some kind of fortress, the interior is magnificent and well worth half an hour.

the decoration inside the chruch is amazing...A sort of delirium of statues, paintings, stucco. It's just close to the santa chiara cloister.

Unprepossessing from the outside, this is a real gem on the inside, well worth seeing. Probably best not to visit on a Sunday as it is a serious place of worship and taking photos is discouraged.

Harmonious decorations using marble and gold make this Church very pleasing. Two organs face each other near the altar. Outside facade quite plain in contrast with the interior.

The outside of this building is ugly! Really ugly! And we learned on our walking tour today that the original owner had intended it to be his residence and that the symbols on the triangle shaped stones actually play a melody... Who knew. But inside, what a suprise. We came to Sunday mass here and then after mass explored. My... More

From the outside it actually looks kind of a boring / awful building. But once you go inside is completely beautiful and amazing. So many beautiful things to look at.

This is a beautiful serene church with a big organ. There was much detail in whole of the church. When we came there it was quit what made it even more impressive. You can easily spend here an half hour if you are in to churches. If you have a guide present he/she can tell you some pretty good information... More
