  • It is located in city centre, in the old town, the historic church. Countless houses in the Church in the region here, but trip NARI Street is located in the building itself are at the top of the stairs where set back slightly from the road. Therefore easy to find.

  • Often we look at things from the outside while passing daily, instead I suggest you get into it because it's a really impressive church and think that once there stood the Agora of Greece makes it even more unique. You're pretty much in the center of town. Magnificent.

  • It's really a beautiful ornate Basilica of beautiful ceilings with wonderful marble floor. The whole recalls in another dimension St Peter in Rome. It is a place of worship to visit.

  • 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.
