This church is amazing, so big and calm. The paintings are beautiful and the walls so nicely decorated. Must see!

Look for the sacristy: you will be surprised by the number of ex-voto silver figures who hang on the walls of a small gallery. They are votive offers given to a saint or to god after taking a vow or in gratitude for the fullfilment...More

Visited this church first week of January so it was nice and quiet with tourists. Grand inside, worthy of a visit.

The outside of the church is quite different from the inside, it is full of golden tones and baroque style. There is also a small museum dedicated to Dr Joseph Moscati, a local doctor.

While the architecture is gigantic, and defies gravity -why doesn’t the roof fall down? - the demonstration of riches just makes you think of all the poor people who had to suffer to allow the church to accumulate this opulent wealth.

The exterior is plain and basic, but don't let it misguide you, the interiors are amazing, just as a miniature version of St Peter's (in Rome).

It was originally a Palace built in 1470 Roberto Sanseverino. Jesu Nuovo, as you might guess by the title, the brainchild of the Jesuits. Why "New"? Because the Jesuits already had the Jesus Church in Naples, now called old Jesus (Gesu vecchio). But the Jesuits,...More

This church offers visitors a grand surprise! The unassuming exterior in no way alludes to the beauty to be found inside. Venture in - it is lavish and bold!

Don't be put off by the quite plain exterior (a story in itself - do your homework!!) as inside it opens up to one of the most amazing churches that I have ever seen
