  • In San Paolo Maggiore definitely intrigued by the chapel of purity. In this place there is a wooden round widespread in churches of the fathers Teatini, built in the seventeenth century, a bit throughout southern Italy. The work, replaced by a photographic image, was created by Spanish artist Luis de Morales said "the divine". Iconographic traits are of value and wonderful. In the heart of Naples is Greek for me was an unexpected discovery. Our Lady, from the stately countenance, is able to capture the look of anyone to transmit its purity. Striking, then, of course, those who have faith and those seeking similar works to deepen their knowledge. Other works of this kind are preserved in Campania, Lazio and Sicily. A wooden table, in many ways priceless, is preserved in the Baptist Church of Colletorto.

  • This basilica, built on the ruins of an ancient temple, is located at the top of via s. Gregorio Armeno (piazza San Gaetano), on via dei Tribunali, in front of the other important monumental complex of San Lorenzo Maggiore. It is accessed by a major double staircase. The Interior is very nice and impressive, with polychrome marble floor, walls adorned with precious paintings and frescoes partly recovered. Another Church to do in Naples.

  • 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.
