  • The Church of San Pietro a Majella dates back to the 13th-14th century, when John Pippin of Barletta, Knight at the time of Charles II of Anjou, had built and dedicated to Pietro Angeleri of Morrone, hermit of Maiella, ascended to the papacy in 1294 under the name of Celestine V and canonized in 1313. The realization of the religious complex, which also included a convent for the friars of the order of Celestines, founded by hermit, contributed from 1314 with substantial donations the same Angevin Royal family. An expansion of the original construction took place between 1493 and 1508. The Church is rectangular. To the early Church dates from the 15th century Glazed tile beautiful floor of the first Chapel to the left of the presbytery. At 1600 dates back the great entrance of the Church, made by Princess di Conca Jeanne Zunica to fulfill a vow, and revealing the typical forms of the Neapolitan Baroque. The altar screen was attributed to Cosimo Fanzago. The ceiling represents one of the most representative examples of Italian painting of the ' 600. The renovation conducted in 1836 with the complete whitewashing of walls destroyed almost all the frescoes which probably covered all the walls of the early Church and of which there are only a few examples. The Church still preserves numerous works of art that has been enriched over time. Major authors: Giovanni da Nola, Massimo Stanzione, Francesco De Mura. On the left side of the church stands the square bell tower terminating in a octagonal belfry.

  • This church was built in the name of Pietro Angeleri da Morone, a hermit monk from Maiella who later became Pope Celestine V. 
  • Church known for its adjacent Conservatory, built in the late 13th century, owes its name to the Holy Pope Celestine V, Pietro Angelerio da Morrone, in memory of the Saint's Hermitage on the Maiella. In the apse altar dates from the XVII century and was designed by Cosimo Fanzago, chandeliers and large silver vases and is preceded by a balustrade covered by colored marbles. About it is posted up a beautiful wooden crucifix from the 15th century. Very beautiful majolica tiles of the chapel Pippin. In the ceiling are famous paintings by Mattia Preti depicting scenes from the life of St. Peter Celestine and Saint Catherine of Alexandria.

  • The Conservatory of Naples, born in 1807 by the Union of ancient music colleges in the city, is housed since 1826 in the fourteenth-century monastery of San Pietro a Majella * *, where it has a precious capital represented by extraordinary ancient musical instruments-including the famous arpetta by * Stardivari * and fascinating memorabilia that belonged to musicians such as Pergolesi, Cimarosa, Bellini and other protagonists of the great Neapolitan school but also by international celebrities such as Liszt and Wagner.
