  • Truly stunning breathtaking basilica in the heart of the historic center of Naples it is impossible not to see it if you walk into via dei tribunali

  • Beautiful basilica centrally located and high with an elegant staircase with balusters really scenic. The Church was built by order of Theatine fathers between ilXVI and 17th century; the Interior has three naves decorated with rich Ornate marble and various works of art. Wonderful time completely painted. Really beautiful ... must see!

  • Recommend to visit this church early in the morning. The colors and the soft light will make you start your tour. Maybe revenue while waiting to begin the routes of underground Naples whose entrance is right next to the Church.

  • Nice church, but the neighborhood is pretty ugly.
  • A must see in Napoli
  • The Basilica of San Paolo Maggiore is a basilica Church in Naples, located at the Greek Agora (and later of the Roman Forum), in Piazza San Gaetano, built on the ruins of the Temple of Castor and Pollux, of which there are two columns of Corinthian order with its lintels that sprout from the façade. The basilica houses within two important works: the guardian angel by Domenico Antonio Vaccaro that represents one of the most important Neapolitan 18th-century sculptures, and the sacristy by Francesco Solimena. The sanctuary of San Gaetano Thiene is one of monumental churches of Naples; It stands in the heart of the historic centre: it is part of the complex of the Basilica of San Paolo Maggiore. The whole monastery has three places of worship. The second in size and importance is located to the right of the main church and has its own separate entrance on piazza San Gaetano. Contemporaneous with the main church, the shrine was carefully designed by Francesco Solimena: of the latter are also the frescoes present in the middle of the aisle. The reliefs depicting the history of Saint cajetan, are creations by Domenico Antonio Vaccaro.
