  • The two tall Corinthian columns on the façade of the Church are the only evidence left of the temple upon which was built the first Church in the area still identified as "Decumani". Nice inside, though damaged by the earthquake of 1688 and by bombing in 1943, it has maintained the appearance essentially Baroque.

  • One of the many churches in Naples historic centre. A beautiful staircase and beautiful Interior (now is also exhibited a Nativity).

  • It was closed for a year for renovations, the couple with the neighbor basilica of San Lorenzo Maggiore. Nice the glance that can be enjoyed from the top of the staircase, in front of the façade with survivors of the Temple of the Dioscuri. Inside, it's great fresco of the façade, and the remains of those from Sam on the ceiling ... Beautiful is the statue of "the guardian angel", by Domenico Antonio Vaccaro (the author of the cloister in Santa Chiara ...). A jewel to be discovered, reveling in this period, life-sized Nativity scene.

  • Grandioso
  • 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.
