  • A must see in Napoli

  • The area on which the basilica was the center of civil and religious life of the Greek-Roman Naples, home of the Agora and the Roman Forum before then. The original building has been continuously transformed without ever being scrapped completely. The Interior has three naves with transept and apse, has a veritable compendium of Neapolitan figurative art between ' 600 and ' 700.
