  • The basilica of Santa Maria of Sanità is located in Piazza della Sanità. It was built between 1602 and 1610 by following the trends of reformation architecture. In the area of health, the Basilica is known as Church of Saint Vincent ' or Munacone (the monacone) because it houses a famous statue of Saint Vincent Ferrer which according to tradition, carried in procession in 1836, saved the city from yet another cholera epidemic. Its distinctive mark in the city is the dome with yellow and green tiles, visible across the bridge. The plan of the Church is a Greek cross, with the presbytery to encompass the previous Paleochristian basilica, which gives access to the catacombs of San Gaudioso. Current classic and Baroque houses testimonies of mannered, and is considered a Museum of 17th-century Neapolitan painting. Numerous works of the second half of the seventeenth century were realized by Luca Giordano.

  • Naples has many beautiful churches bad big small, many closed, but a truly unmissable is santa maria della sanità! I think it's the most scenic of all the town church with its beautiful raised altar (for those who know it is reminiscent of the Church of saint etienne du mont in Paris) which is accessed by two lateral stairways. the altar was built to safeguard the existing basilica and the catacombs of san gaudioso. in the various chapels there are significant works of art by giovanni balducci, luca giordano, andrea vaccaro. gorgeous polychrome pulpit too. the Church can be visited freely while the catacombs visits are guided. and here let me extol the "cooperativa la paranza" whose guides will accompany you. the cooperative is comprised of young people of the neighborhood health, known more for degradation than anything else, these John going about their business with passion, competence and above all love their neighborhoods and their city! my group was led by anna, a storyteller! He explained things with competence and above all with simplicity all seasoned with anecdotes about the history and folk beliefs!!! You can't leave Naples without seeing this masterpiece!

  • Extraordinary visit to the catacombs accompanied by guides (Antonio and Fridria?). Professional and friendly at the same time! A magical experience as the whole city of Naples
