  • It is located in the old Center of the city. Your input main is located on via Mezzocannone, where the facade is clearly visible. Is an of the iglesias-basilicas more important to of Naples. The Church currently shows a Basilica plan with a nave and two side with nine side chapels, five in the left nave and four on the right. It is a valuable witness of major historical and artistic periods of the city.

  • munastero and santa Clara. It is the most famous song in the world that speaks of a place of worship in Naples. but when St. Clare was built at the time of the Angevin monarchy, san giovanni maggiore existed for about a thousand years. his first settlement dates back to shortly after the Emperor Constantine's edict of Milan and legend has it that she was the daughter of the Emperor, Constantine or constancy, to convince the inhabitants of the current area called san giovanni maggiore or Eastern square, to accept the Christian faith and celebrate the Eucharist in a place that already brought together local people-perhaps the seat of a non-Christian deities-then a phratry in 580 the establishment of parish , left with a vast territory until 1597 and that gave birth to the vast majority of the parishes of the city. the great basilica was a cultural centre with dramatic moments at the time of the Reformation the Lutheran said. reopened in 2012 after 42 years of static and aesthetic work, looks full of light and well set up a Christian place of those who follow Christ, light of the world. Open daily until 15, would the Eucharist is celebrated at noon on Sundays and solemnities. the current altar is placed over the remains for now not visible in the first place of worship; then a sign of continuity from 1600 years.
