  • Is rich in works of art that testify to its history that began at the end of 1200. First, hits the Golden coffered wooden ceiling, down the aisle and transept, adorned by beautiful and precious panels-round and rectangular-seventeenth-century pictorial masterpieces alternately by Mattia Preti. This Baroque, which is restated in the apse altar in polychrome marble inlays, Pearl and finished Golden balustrade, contrasts nicely with an Interior that still retains its original austere appearance of Gothic, "stealing" the scene. Very interesting the chapels of the presbytery, which preserve the Angevin architecture, frescoes, tile floors and Renaissance sculptures (out of all the San Sebastiano di Giovanni da Nola). Abound, 10 chapels of aisles, the funerary monuments embellished with some paintings by De Mura and the Stanzione. The adjoining Convent is occupied, from 1826, from the Conservatory. The left aisle is inaccessible, cordoned off for work in progress. To observe the characteristic Bell Tower on the left side who as an external will mark the direction to the Tribunals '.

  • Coming from via dei Tribunali, of this church you immediately notice the tripartite facade and Spire and Bell Tower from the outside you wouldn't think to remain so fascinated by its beautiful interior Angevin Gothic style. It has three naves, tall and Dour, and has a spectacular Baroque coffered ceiling with inserts and paintings by Mattia Preti, the frescoes that depict the history of San Martino and della Maddalena and the beautiful inlaid wooden choir of the sixteenth century. Nice the presbytery with Baroque decoration in marquetry, preceded by a gilded balustrade, and the marble altar. A thanks to janitors who let us in even though they were near closing the Church. Must see!

  • The Church of San Pietro a Majella, dating back to the 14th century, was built by order of Charles II of Anjou and was dedicated to Pietro del Morrone, later known as Pope Celestine V. It underwent several changes, first at the request of Robert of Anjou, then by Alfonso I of Aragon. By the time the original gothic features baroque features properly assumed that were later retrieved, as is the case with the pointed arches of the ceiling. The main paintings that adorn it, artworks of Mattia Preti, are dedicated to Celestine V and to Saint Catherine of Alexandria. They are joined by, among others, the works of Sam, the V and of Fanzago.
