  • Church of Gothic architecture in the historic center of Naples, expanded during the following centuries and dedicated to Pope Celestine V, who was the first Pope in the Church's history to leave voluntarily on the papal throne.

  • Erected in 1300 at the initiative of Giovanni Pipino da Barletta, is dedicated to Pietro angelerio, founder of the Celestine order, elected Pope under the name of Celestine V, hermit on the Maiella mountain after the surrender to the papal throne. The Celestine fathers remained there until 1799, when the sopppressione of the convent became in 1826 Conservatory of music, while the Church was abandoned. After the restoration, completed in 1933, the Church was entrusted to the servants of Mary. It is one of the most significant monuments of Gothic architecture, built on the site of the existing St. Agatha and St. Euphemia, has three naves with five chapels on either side. Around the middle of the 17th century the Church was adapted to new aesthetic standards of the Baroque, the walls were covered with stucco. The altar, designed by Cosimo Fanzago, was decorated with marble policromiu, madrepoerla inserts and precious stones with un0ampia and beautiful marble balustrade. On the right of the transept there is a portal of the 16th secoloi, from which access was gained to the cloister of the adjacent convent. The chapel of the Rosary, takes its name from the altar dedicated to our Lady of the Rosary, is located behind the main altar of the Church of the redemption of Captivi, built to redeem the prisoners captured by the Turks and rebuilt by Ferdinando Gianfelice in 1706.La Chapel, once part of the structure of today's Conservatory, ogi is separated by a door, decorated with stucco in gold to great importance at the end of ' 700 presents one organ to locker and nineteenth-century canvases. Noteworthy the waist in tile white background with two sides of various shades of green.

  • Gothic church, later Baroque, like many churches in Naples, linked to the nearby Music Conservatory, because both from ancient Celestine fathers complex, is a church not known, although in the historical center of Naples, but on par with other more famous temples Neapolitans. The visit can be done without driving, because the various chapels and various objects of interest are described in detail, but if you have a guide it is best not to disperse and take care especially about more interesting things. Consider the contamination, renovations and restoration, this church, like others, lacks uniformity in style with regard to monuments, paintings and objects on display, but the big picture, even if composite, is stunning. We highlight the beautiful altar carved by Fanzago, the coffered ceiling with paintings by Mattia Preti, the 16th-century choir and so many other details in relation to the specific interests of the visitor. To me, for example, is concerned with a very small 15th century majolica floor, which makes a fine show in one of the chapels of the left aisle.
