  • Not only the Church, beautiful with numerous chapels of the main noble families Naples (unfortunately all erased and then only partially appreciable), but don't miss the Aragonese Royal tombs and the sacristy cupboards with their clothes and the cell of Saint Thomas with written by his hand. And this for only 7 euros. Dear to the ticket the young man who gave me a guided tour. This place, like Naples, oozes history.

  • A visit not to be missed at the lower decumanus to admire the Church of San Domenico Maggiore, built by Charles of Anjou, completed in 1324, Dominicans and majestic in its Gothic and Baroque. To see ben 27 chapels, one more beautiful than the other: in that of Carlo Borromeo there are two paintings by Mattia Preti, the Mary Magdalene there is a painting by Solimena. That crazy though is the Brancaccio, with narcotics frescoes by Pietro Cavallini, dating from the 13th century and still well preserved. The high altar is by Cosimo Fanzago, the floor of the Church is of V. The museum complex is separate and surcharge (7 euro), but it's worth it: a guided tour leads to the Sacristy (beautiful ceiling by Solimena), the Sala del Tesoro with the vestments and then there is the cell of Saint Thomas Aquinas, doctor of the Church who taught in the convent adjacent to the Church. In the cell of Saint Thomas you admire the painting of the 13th-century crucifix which is said to have spoken to the Saint and a relic with St Thomas's Homer.
