Church
Head off the beaten path to discover Basilica dell'Immacolata al Gesu Vecchio, home to a rich history and impressive artwork. Construction on the grand church lasted from 1554 to 1624, and it features a Jesuit college and refectory. Though often upstaged by the New Jesus Church, a more popular tourist attraction, this minor basilica plays host to a number of treasures. Walk up the central aisle to view the Neapolitan Baroque altar, featuring a sculpture of St. Francis Borgia, one of the early Superior Generals of the Jesuits. In the side chapels you can glimpse centuries-old paintings.
